Completed Project Add: Beaded Flowers - Flowering Cactus

Another beaded flower for this week's post.

This is a cactus I made for my dad to take to his office.  I think this was the third beaded flower I'd made.  I might be wrong on that.  There are some things I would like to fix, but overall I think it turned out pretty well.

And a couple more views:

Now, let me tell you... those gold spines are just as sharp and prickly as the real thing.  I don't know how many times I poked myself while putting them on.
