This flower is from our Pohutakawa Tree in New Zealand - we call it our Christmas tree as at this time of the year it comes out and covers the tree in these amazing flowers. I have drawn this with free motion stitching and hand stitched the flower head in single thread and sewn on little beads at the tips of the flower, coloured the leaves with pencil and gell pen.

Your flower is gorgeous, but you should paint or fill in the background ! that's just an advice...
