Romance (after rework)

If you were here yesterday, you read my frustration. I'm much happier today after reworking this piece I made Thursday. First, I cut off some of the excess lace around the top flower. Also, I finally added the back and tabs for hanging the piece, as well as some of that lovely rusted tulle with decorations which made the piece more cohesive. I also like that the silk flowers are less distinct and don't look quite so off color compared to the wet wipe colors. Now I can call it complete. I'm also going to add it to my Inspiration Avenue post because some people visit on Sunday after it's been posted on their site. Thanks for looking and offering all your lovely comments yesterday, too.

Also, Sandra De, if you are reading this, please send me an e-mail. My e-mail is listed on my blogger profile.
