Birthday bouquet

I had a beautiful bouquet on my birthday back in October, from my better half, and one of the flowers within it was a blue Hydrangea.
I  kept it in a ceramic vase as it dried and it now has lovely russet tinged tips to the petals and high pale veins that look stunning.
I decided to take one of the smaller flowers and preserve it under glass.
I used a page from an old book of poetry by Milton as backing for the flower and set in in sterling silver.
