A Flower Challenge

I'm in the mood for FLOWERS!  Flowers for Hero Arts and a stamp challenge at Lily Pad Cards.  Simon Says Stamp presents a flower challenge.  This should get you in the mood for spring.  I look at this stamp and think, such a common, flower... and then a little tweaking and it's an absolute gorgeous member of the flower family.  I used Copic markers and a bit of Perfect Pearls spritzing on the flower - ok, more than a bit.  I found some dark purple beads in my jewelry making container and added those.  It was hard to take a photo of the flower as it looked hazy with all the shine from the Perfect Pearls.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.
