Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Day Five of The Month of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place  - and the first non-alphabet prompt.  Today's prompt is Same But Different (complementary colours).

I actually had this card completed but not photographed about 2 hours ago but got distracted with a phone call and have only just managed to get back to it (after being distracted by other things as well in the meantime).

There are six complementary colour pairs - three main ones and three in-between ones.  The obvious one to use for a poinsettia would be one of the main ones of red and green.  But when do I go for the obvious choice?  So, I chose the other two main pairings - purple/yellow and blue/orange.

and a close up of the individual cards:

I have used an image and sentiment from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.  


  1. Well done Suze! It's always fabulous to see something a little different, and these complimentary colour schemes fit the bill perfectly. Love the matching borders you added too.

  2. Great use of colours for your contrasts on the poinsettias Suze, and two wonderful cards

  3. Suze, have to say this is a great theme for a challenge. Love the cards. Thanks for linking up with us over at Crafters Cafe. Best of luck, Jana DT

  4. All great colour combos. Thanks for joining us at The Crafter's Café this month for our Flowers challenge.
