Mojo Monday

Hi friends! If you visit my blog, then you may know that I have a little love affair with floral stamps. They call my name LOUD....;). So when Verve had their last release, I couldn't resist the new florals! What originally caught my eye about Verve were the beautiful florals and the sentiments specifically the fonts. Certainly not the everyday boring fonts...but fun unique ones. So I thought it only fitting to ink up my new goodies for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch challenge!
I've used the new set, Brighter Days, for my focal piece and sentiment.  Not only did the florals attract me to this set but so did those sentiments!  Ok, I have to confess that I do not like to do angles or tilting of part of my layout but I made it work for this sketch!
