Use Your Word "SWEET"

Hi. It's time for a new word at Use your word Blog challenge and the word is "Sweet"  Here is my page. I used MME paper collection.  I added a mask and stucco effects from MS.  I then wanted to splash some color on the page and one color led to another color and another.  I finished with some banners and some blooms.

I was a little nervous about this page thought I might of gone too far with the colours, but in the end I am Happy with the result.

I hope you find some crafty time to play at Use Your Word.
