Petal Light II (Finished!)

This one is finally finished and I am really happy with how it turned out -- I watched every edge very carefully when adding the background, softening where flower petals and the dark background washes meet by wetting the edge with a damp brush when the background is almost dry but not quite yet -- a really scary business but quite rewarding if it was done right. I am being shameless here... :-P
