Second Flower

I have an origami flower this time to share with you. 
I found a wonderful tutorial here at Scraps to Treasure.
I had fun putting this flower together although it did take a little longer than my satin flower.  
If I was to do it again I would probably sew through all the petals twice or three times to make it more sturdy.  I would also keep a closer watch on my petals.  Couldn't believe that I got to the end of sewing the petals together and seemed to be missing a small petal.  Could not for the life of me find it anywhere so thought I must have been going mad and cut one less.  Of course, the day after having it all constructed I discovered the missing petal. :-(
The centre of the flower I used my scalloped edge circle spellbinders and cut the shape from some pink felt then added this wonderful button.

Wishing you all a great far Monday is looking good here.
