April Showers Bring May Flowers

About this design:

The colors of the marine and verdigris patinas just screamed spring rain to me and using the crystal as the center of the flower made me think of a little raindrop. I textured the flower shaped altered blank and used the dapping block to give it some dimension and interest.
