Colour challenge cards

Good morning friends/bloggers, it's a lovely sunny day here
 today. I hope you have sun too! Over at  the 'Less is More'
challenge  this week it's a ..................................................
Colour Challenge 
"This month we would like you to choose TWO opposite
 colours from this Colour Wheel"
(I will add it at the bottom or otherwise my card won't
 show up in posts.)  My first thought was to use 'violet red 
and yellow green', but my violet red ink wouldn't stamp
very well with my image. I tried instead some violet ink
which worked really well. Of course then I had forgotten
the colour violet should be teamed with yellow and not
 yellow green. Arghhh!! I only realised after I had finished
making the card and taken a photo...typical. So I set to
 work and made another, this time I couldn't get the image 
to stamp cleanly. So after numerous attempts I resorted to
making a matted image with one I was happy with. I 
added my yellow butterfly, gems and sentiment and job
 done.Phew.....and relax.Come and have a closer look
 at  my cards. I will show you both versions seeing as I
have already taken photo's of them.Rather liking the violet 
and green myself but you can choose which looks best.Not
 made a card in almost 2 weeks now, so struggling a tad.
ps. I am still feeling terrible with this  horrid cold virus and I
 am SO glad you can't see me too. I am not a pretty site atm. 
believe me lol, my eye is partially closed because of 
conjuntivitis. Having not slept again ( awake at 1 ish then
 got up at 5am., coughing all night etc. ) I don't have bags
 under my eyes now I have mahoosive suitcases! My eye was
 glued shut when I woke up so I was stumbling about trying
 to find the bathroom looking a very sorry site. Almost 
frightened myself when I caught site of my face in the mirror
 too.It's all not good people lol.Sorry for the long post now too.
pps.Ooops mean't to add.......a very big welcome to all my
 latest followers , welcome aboard and thanks for choosing me.

I love both of them and of course green is my favourite colour but the yellow goes better with the purple :o)

Oh Viv poor you! Bad enough feeling poorly and looking a sight but lack of sleep is a killer, says the girl who never has problems in that department!! Love your cards, the violet and lime is my fav colour combo but I love the first layout with the crunched corner:) Hope your weather is as good as ours, it was wonderful yesterday but is very windy and cooler today but still sunny.

Two fabulous cards. Bothe colour combinations are super but I like the raised image on the first.
Sorry to hear you are unwell. Hope you are better soon.

Sorry to hear you're still sick Viv, sounds like a nasty bug you've had. I hope the eye gets better soon too.
Your cards are both lovely, it's nice to see the contrast in colours.

Poor you Viv - it sounds like you've really been through the mill. Hope you feel better soon. Glad to see you've been able to make some cards - and what a gorgeous design. I do like the one with the yellow butterfly best but they're both beautiful! Vicky x
