Second half of April 2020 theme is Flowers at TCCC blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity! I've got to give you a bit of background on the image from this challenge's sponsor SheepSki Designs. The image come with the camera lens empty or with a tiny lighthouse scene, so since this is a flowers theme I chose the plain lens that I swirled some indigo colored pencil to shade it. Since I chose an digital image that didn't come with flowers I decided to have flowers in the patterned papers. That led to creating some posy-shaped accents of coordinating papers to the background patterned paper.
