Felt Flower - Purple Power!

What are you most proud of? I'm quite pleased that it turned out as well as it did! I was afraid it would look cheap or cheesy but I don't think it is either. I think I will make more of these to use as embellishments and other home decor items. I added additional petals here and there once the original rings were set. I think that by adding those additions, the flower is more organic in appearance and less "perfect". While my OCD wants everything to match, nature isn't like that. I allowed same colors to overlap or butt up against each other with a nice visual effect. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is easy-peasy! I estimate that I spent a total of 3 - 3.5 hours to complete this flower. I have not decided how I'm going to use it, so that would add more time. My advice is to just go for it when you want to try something that has inspired you.
