Split Complimentary colours

Welcome to the fifth and final week of the Make My Monday colour wheel challenges.  This week we're focusing on a trio of colours known as SPLIT COMPLIMENTARY COLOURS.

 Split complimentary colours are fun to play with.  You start with one colour, find its compliment and instead of using the compliment, use the two colours beside the compliment.  Mynnette has chosen the split complimentary colour scheme of fuscia, green, and yellow for you to create with this week.  White and cream are your acceptable neutrals again! You may stamp lined images and sentiments in either black or brown, but solid images should be stamped in fuscia, green, and/or yellow.

We at Make My Monday, have come to the last of Mynnette's colour challenges, I haven't found these challenges to be easy, but I have greatly enjoyed them. Some challenges are more challenging than others, but those are the ones I learn something from, so thanks Mynnette, for taking me out of my comfort zone, it has been fun. This the last week has been even more challenging, however, once I popped onto Less Is More and saw their Sketch theme for this week I knew immediately how to use the colours. I am also entering this card into the Less Is More challenge, please note the above girls, not my normal colours, but different and fun to do. 
I would like to say a personal farewell to Suzanne B who has recently left the DT team, you will be missed but I am happy to know we will be meeting each other around blogland. 
We, Jacqueline the owner and the DT have decided to take the month of August as a Summer recess. This current challenge will last until we return, all entries will be commented upon and the winners will be announced on our return 6th September. I do hope we in the UK have a better remaining summer with some sun. Sorry this entry is so long, so much to say.
