Make My Monday - colour wheel

It's the fourth week at Make My Monday with a focus on the color wheel!  This week the main focus is on ANALOGOUS COLOURS.

Analogous colors are colors that sit in a group of three right next to each other on the color wheel.  We usually use these combinations when doing monochromatic artwork.  This week we are focusing on blues and Mynnette would like to see creations using turquoise, light blue, and dark blue with white or cream as your neutrals. You may stamp lined images and sentiments in either black or brown, but solid images should be stamped in one of the three blues.

My card this week started off as a bunch of flowers and ended up as a Christmas card!! 

White base card
Dark blue and Turquoise coredinations card
Embossing folder
Whimsy die
Banner from SU Pines and Poinsettias

This was the best photo I could capture and the turquoise card looks more like a pale green but IRL it's blue! I sanded the embossing to get the paler blue and paper pieced the bank at the front. This is the first time I've used this EF and I may make a few more for Christmas as I like the depth it gives:)

Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully let me know what you think!
