WT 117 - FLOURISHES

I decided to revisit the color challenge in my creating of this card. I really struggled and was not pleased with my previous results, but am pleased with this card! Anyway, background is stamped with French script. Sentiment is by Stampabilities. Flourishes are rub ons by American Crafts (and they match perfectly in real life). White strip is by Doodlebug Designs -- they are called "Paper Frills" and I found them at my local scrap store last time I was in there and thought they looked like something cool I could use. Stitching was done on a whim at the end and I think it adds something cool to the card. What do you think? Better than my other color challenge card for sure!!!
