Magnolia Petal Progress

I have been trying to do one petal each night. The stamped area has seed beads within the patterns and the edges are buttonhole stitch with seed beads. The gell medium has made the petals soft and pliable like fine leather though they will tear easily if the stitches are too tight. I think I am going to need more than 5 petals to complete this but it is coming along. Here I have pinned the petals together to get an idea of how it might come together
