Orchid petals

I am not fond of couching wires for stumpwork. The instructions called for couching the wire around a satin ribbon, and then cutting the petal out without any further stitching. I decided to use a purple silk fabric instead of the satin ribbon. However the silk fabric looks too dull, so I am stitching the petals instead.
These are the 5 petals for one flower.
