Floral Monogram

The details on this flower monogram piece by Heather are just astonishing. She designed this lovely pattern herself and decided to add a splash of yellow to this color scheme. This medium tone gold yellow brought the deeper shades of blues & purples together and resulted in a piece that's just mesmerizing to look at.
