    The 'arms' are so sparkly and bejeweled and lacy looking--like panels of a taffeta ball gown. Really brings Cinderella to mind! Lovely.

    Do the petals open twisted or is that something that occurs more slowly?

    (Doh! I just found out that the black S on the text edit menu isn't the spell checker! So that's where that "spoiler" code thingy keeps coming from!) Geesh.

    .
    They start flat, then twist as the flower matures. I was hoping for more twists, as the award winning ones have 2 to 3 full twists in the petals..
