    Monnie, this is a gorgeous capture! Congratulations on your feature. This would look great in Enchanted Flowers.

  • Thanks, April! I’ll go add it to your group – for some reason I always think you need entire whole flowers without cut-off parts!

    You are thinking possibly of One Single Flower On Display group which does require the whole flower.

  • Methinks you’re right!
