Complementary color cards can be very beautiful. For the card featured I went with a purple and green color scheme. If you don't know what colors complement each other check out the color scheme designer website, http://colorschemedesigner.com/. This card has a less is more approach. I wanted the focal point to be the stamped and colored image. The final look is a simple, savvy handmade card.
