basket of flowers

 I drew a freehand diagram of a basket and embroidered different flowers of different colors with different types of thread
Raised cup stitch flower in deep blue didn't come out well as I think it needed some thicker thread
 I embroidered it with perle cotton 8 and it was quite thin for the stitch.
 .I have used different stitches of tast of Sharon b pin tangle.
