Flip-Flop Photo Edit

I've been a little photo-challenge-crazy lately.  I'm gonna be honest, it's totally an avoidance tactic. I have tons of other tasks calling out my name, but this is way more fun! :) Linking up to Flip-Flop again.
Flip Flop Photo Edit Challenge

  Check out this pretty little flower SOOC by Amy.

I took the photo into lightroom and increased all of the different hue saturations and slightly changed the blue hue.  I upped the blacks a bit, sharpened, did a little noise reduction.  Lightened and brightened with the brush.  Flipped the photo, cropped slightly, brought into picmonkey and used the trepid effect at a very low opacity.  Put on a watermark and that's it!  Now go check out Amy's blog and you can edit this little beauty yourself!
Okay, NOW I'll go fold the laundry. :)
