Peonies are some of my favorite flowers with their velvet petals and lovely fragrance. This image has layers of light textures for vintage appeal and has a soft, dreamy glow.
The butterflies in this display are actually a pretty butter-yellow, but today I made them pink and added some vintage texture and faint script.
