A to Z - Curtain Call #30

It's Sunday!  Time for another edition of the Curtain Call Challenge!  Our leader, Stacey, has chose a very interesting colors this week.  I like using combinations I wouldn't normally gravitate towards, because it really does make it a challenge.
I thought about what I would do all week long.  Nothing was coming to me.  I was a bit preoccupied with gardening this week.  So, when I sat down to create my contribution, I had no idea where I where it would take me.

I ended up using a new stamp A to Z, inked in Pink Pirouette.  On top the sentiment "Hi" from a vintage stamp set I have.  One interesting item?  My flower is made of the packing material from a Stampin' Up! shipment.  It's the perfect weight and it's already "pre-scrunched!"
