This is for Color Challenge CC417. Perhaps better to say "inspired by," since I went off the rails more than a little. Baha Breeze ink for Bashful Blue, Spring Moss CS for Certainly Celery with the addition of Old Olive ink on those leaves, and of course that Island Indigo BG. I intended to work this card on a Kraft BG, but honestly it was looking so dull. I happen to lay some of the pieces on a stray scrap of Island Indigo and that was it, no going back. But look! A big sentiment! From the original allergic-to-sentiments gal. So miracles do happen!
And the butterfly is my dessert (a critter).

Oh yes, I was allergic to big sentiments too (and even most small ones !!), I know where you're coming from, Rachel! But more and more I find myself using the few big ones I have, and wishing I had more. I keep looking at Word Play (the newer one) on eBay, but perhaps luckily for me there are still too many in it I probably would never use for me to buy it. Yet...
You certainly have a great balance between the sentiment and those sweet buttoned-up flowers
