Opposites Attract

We have another Tuesday Throwdown challenge beginning today and our theme this time is Opposites Attract!  See the color wheel below and use colors to reflect  that opposites attract.  We're being sponsored by Craft Classes Online and you can see all the information about these wonderful classes on the Tuesday Throwdown blog  -  and by entering our challenge you have a chance to receive a wonderful prize from Craft Classes Online.  While there also see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT! 

I used orange and blue for my card stamping the candles and sentiment with a couple of Stamps of Life images.  The blue patterned paper was some in my stash and then I added the orange enamel dots that were done with my Paint Pen.  I used some clear Wink of Stella on the "flames".

Thanks for stopping by.....and head on over to Tuesday Throwdown now!
