SU Quint-Essential Flower

Give me some shades…this card is bright!!

Played around some more with the SU Quint-Essential Flower single stamp. This time a veered from my usual darker earth tones and brightened things up with Yellow, Green, and Orange! And, I liked the change. It even matches my blog background!
