I loved what HayleyK did with her border on her recent EC, so this is my take on it (imitation being the sincerest form of flattery...). My 'Ballerina Bellis', use of the marquee tool to isolate the centre, then a double radial blur, a bit of history brush to replace some lost detail, and a bit of tidying up.

Thanks so much for looking; I'm well behind on your PFs but hope to invent some time this week to catch up!
