A New Design - My Wedding Bouquet

This is my first confetti design, and I worked this out to be about 125 colors to make sure there was detail, but not an over use. I am still tweaking the design, but after putting several evenings into it, I am going to take a break. Looking for feedback....

My First Fascinator....

I just finally finished, in the nick of time, a fascinator for someone to wear to a wedding in Britain.

This fascinator is to be worn by a Canadian attending a mixed wedding. It is 5 stitched together Maple Leafs, and it is hand sculpted and colored. The I did a complex satin Stitch over the leaf veins. I used for the first time DMC Satin Floss and wow that was a challenge in itself, but at least it come out close to how I envisioned it to be. It is to be worn across the head, in the hair, and it has attached clips for securing it to the hair. Perhaps I will have a photo of the finished look.
