Less is More week 118-colour

Hi everyone I'm running a bit late for this week's LIM challenge which is as follows:

Colour Challenge 
This month we would like you to choose TWO opposite colours from this Colour Wheel

I couldn't make up my mind on any combination, it's strange because I have used a colour wheel all my working life to colour correct hair when it's gone wrong!! So to me opposites cancel each other out:) Anyway I eventually decided on violet and yellow and here's what I came up with:

I also made a card using the same colours but I didn't think it was CAS enough for Chrissie and Jen so went with the first one:)

I'm also putting my 2nd card in for the MMM challenge which is Anything that flies

Thanks for visiting and hopefully leaving a comment as I love to read them!
