This month's Challenge is to use script and or colours:

First of all I looked in my stash for suitable papers - and I came across all these...

I decided to make a collage type three-layered stepper card,
 by layering these various papers:

Here are more pictures showing the various layers:
This is the back row - it features a green negative of a floral die cut:

Next one side then the other...I added some flowers from my stash.
