Chrysanthemum maybe

I had so much fun making the flower, but I'm not sure of its classification, chrysanthemum maybe. Every card needs a bit of sparkle & the glitter glue catches the light even in this low light situation. I adore this flocked patterned paper, it was difficult cutting it but it had to be done (I'll just have to buy some new ones). This was my first time embossing on vellum & my only purple ink was a colorbox chalk so I had to work very fast! (Must get a more suitable ink for embossing)

Here's a close up of the flower in better light conditions.
