Very pretty! I like your departure from the conventional use of multiple colors with that motif -- with the "twinkling stars" surrounding the large flower motifs. It demonstrates how versatile the pattern is.

Thank you! Its an amazing pattern! So versatile! Doing them a little differently makes them look completely different from the original pattern. There is one on Ravelry that was done in the back loop of one of the rounds and it makes the flower stand out really nicely!
