"Adopt the pace of NATURE her secret is patience" by Ralph Waldo Emerson. What a great quote! Reminding you to slow down sometimes. This is Mushroom Umbrella by artist Betsy LePlatt available at Squigglefly . I added some iridescent medium on the wings to make them shimmer.

Melissa this is really sweet. I love your coloring- especially like your little row of flowers at the bottom and the sparkle on the wings. The quotation is a wonderful one!
