UR awesome

Stamps: Headline Alpha (SU); Fanciful Flowers (Elzybells)
Ink: Pale Tomato (HA); Lilac Posies (Memento)
Paper: Citrus Stack (DCWV)
Other: Spotted e.f. (Provocraft); Aharoni font; Silhouette SD; tracing paper
Well this is one design I won't be repeating in a hurry!  All those stamped flowers, never mind coaxing the letters out of the chevrons where my Silhouette blade is going blunt.
I've had the idea for the 'awesome' chevrons for a wee while now, but never had the opportunity to use them.  Initially I was going to try to make them with the Parker Alphabet, but the letters were just too big, so I dusted off my Silhouette.  The tag was inspired by this week's CASE This Sketch, & the tracing paper prevents the background making the letters look too busy.  I like the contrast of the flowers against the grey masculine chevrons - they soften the whole effect.
