Muse Challenge #124

The fabulously talented Ardyth is the Muse this week and provided a gorgeous summery card full of white flowers and glittery yellow centers against a green and blue background.  You can find Ardyth's card here.  My card focused on the just the white flower with the glittery yellow center.
