I started out with the colors from the Lisa Somerville's challenge and then began to think about how to go from there. I had been wanting to use the Fabulous Florets stamp set, but so many Stampin' Up ladies had used it so wonderfully I couldn't quite get a handle on it. I pulled it anyway and still thinking I pulled a sketch from Mojo Monday from last year then that brought to mind the Too Terrific Tags stamp set which was one of the first stamp sets I bought from Stampin' Up, stamped with Marina Mist ink and punched with the Lg. Tag punch. The striped paper is from Making Memories, but very old because I want to start using more of my stash. I pulled the waxed black string and the 3 black rhinestones with 1 small black rhinestone on the silhouette just to set it off. I don't think it's to noticeable in the photo, but it shows up in real time. 
3 great challenges, give them a go.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
