Waste Not, Want Not


After I'd made my floral chevrons for this card, I still had the background stamp fully inked, and I wasn't going to waste it.  So I misted it with water then stamped it off twice.  This is the first of the two stamp-offs.

The challenge at CR84FN is to use the following colours.  Since I already had the blue and the green, I just needed to introduce a bit of grape in the form of the flower, the bling and the sentiment.
