CAS-ual Fridays...Opposites Attract

I thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my Friday post...it made me feel so special in the midst of all my nervousness!!  I will be straight with you...there is a bit of self imposed pressure to make the most amazing cards after you've been invited to be a part of a design team...but I realized something the other day(although I've always known it, but have to keep reminding myself).  I am me...and my cards are me...it's not my charming personality, or smashing good looks :) by which Michele invited me to be a part of her team...so I have decided... I will just keep doing what I've been doing, always trying to do better, and it'll be ok!!  Just be yourself!!...hmmm... a great sentiment for a card but it's a fantastic thought for life!!!   I am a bit nervous but so very excited:)!!!   That being said, the challenge for this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a card using 2 opposite colors from the color wheel .
  I googled color wheel and chose the 2 tertiary colors on the left and right...I chose Tangerine Tango and Taken With Teal to make the flowers for my card:
I opted to keep the card as white as I could to show off the color of the flowers.  I used the postage stamp die from Papertrey Ink, the flowers are Memory Box, the sentiment is Hero Arts.  Layered the postage stamp rectangles for depth and dimension, and scored 2 lines on top and bottom of flowers.  The card is 4 x 6...I just liked having 3 of each flower, so made it a bit longer than A2 card.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Lisa, I echo what Deb said. My stomach has been doing flips but, like you, I've just said that I only know how to do me. :) Your card is awesome. I love the white space and the texture of that paper, and the flowers are perfect.
