Julie, I love the delicate touch here.

Color, contrast and texture ~ they're all in such a nice harmony.

Very well seen and executed. Great framing.

Champagne wishes and Dandelion dreams!
Your work is a real inspiration Julie! I haven't used the gradient filter in a long time and this image tells me I need to dust it off and try it again! Thank you for working your trade so beautifully!
