Ophelia - TMTATC

Ophelia is a tragic character in Shakespeare's play "Hamlet". She seems to be doomed from the start, in love to a man that is on the edge of madness; being torn and taunted, loved and put aside.  She's manipulated by her father for his gain.  She loved and lost everything including her life.  She was found drowned, a victim of suicide.  It is from her character that we learn of the "language of flowers".  She says "There's rosemary, that's for rememberence.  Pray you, love, remember.  And then there's pansies, thats for thoughts.  There's fennel for you, and columbines."  In the end, she faded like the flowers she was associated with.
The image is from ArtChix Studios, the brighter pink flowers I cut out from a magazine.  The leaves are some punch outs that I have had for a while now.  
This was a more challenging prompt!  But I enjoyed seeing how I could do it!
