Quilled flower number four

Here's the final flower design in the series I've been developing for my floral card.

It was inspired by a flower like this:

I'm not sure what this one is called, but we have some of them growing in our garden and I love the way the delicate purple petals fan out from an unusual deep pink coloured centre. The middle of the flower is almost black, which is very dramatic.

Making those pairs of open-scrolled petals was fiddly, but I got the effect I wanted. Now I've got the task of assembling the finished card, which is going to be a massive gluing operation for all the different elements I've made. I'm going to have to be in the right mood for doing it, hopefully with no interruptions! I promise to post it soon ...
