Bouquet Throw...down!

The colors at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week were so pretty, just had to play....olive green, hot pink, and black!


I got a new stamp set, my first from Concord & 9th, and it's so much fun!  It's called Sophisticated Script.  I got the bundle with both the upper and lowercase sets because I love the look of hand-lettering on tags, and my handwriting is not pretty like that!  I thought it would be perfect to try out with Freehand Florals from WPlus9 ...


I added a background using an old 6x6 backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms called "Perfect Plaid."  Unfortunately, I made some smudges on my floral piece because of all of the black, so my bouquet got bigger, and bigger, and wider to cover them up!


 Inspiring colors to warm our chilly hearts this weekend...it's seems to be cold everywhere, although not as snowy here in Rochester as it is for about everyone else around us (and in the nation)! :)
