Inspired by Flowers

 Welcome to day 2 of the MFT teasers. This is a peek at the new set "Inspired by Flowers (set 3)". I wanted a very clean design so that I could let this pretty bloom take center stage. I colored it with my copic markers and airbrushed the background.
I embossed the "high tea party doily" to add interest to my white card base. I love the pretty bold sentiments in this set...they certainly balance out the weight of the pretty images. I've always loved water lilies!
 Here is a close up of the flower....I went over it with some colored spica pens....for some sparkle!
