Lovely detail in this 'life or death' situation, Carol Tongue Creative work, maybe not so sure about the colour of the Epz background though.

Couldn't understand what the bg problem was but see from the comments you've changed it to black. Works brilliantly for floral images, I reckon! Another beautiful set. Love them all but probably V1 just tips it for me.
