Cast on Stitch-Brazilian Embroidery

Have been playing around with cast on stitch .Here's what I ended up with.

Since it was a trial attempt , I used anchor cotton embroidery threads.The single leaf is done in alternate satin or leaf stitch with some stitches extended a bit to give the edgy look. Does it resemble some flower? I want to give a name to it. I was inspired by a certain kind of flower and was trying to recreate it.And no.. I'm not going to tell you what was it supposed to be..that's a secret... May be you can try guessing :))

Looks better than mine did!! I too used Ancor, but the #8 and #12 peral cottons for my trials - more like the Brazilian threads.

I would call it Deepa's Sunset Rose!!! Thanks for the information about using Anchor perle cotton for practice.
