Shading a delicate flower

This is this morning’s cut I think I’m ready to start a story or something because my mind is racing with fanciful images.
I put something like this on a few days ago but this one gave the pronunciation, to bad I was having too much fun pronouncing it my way.
Scherenschnitte (shear-n-SNIT- a) which means "scissor cuts" in German is the art papercutting design. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 1500s and was brought to Colonial America in the 1700s by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania.
