Rose Fairy Update

I did some stitching during UFO week on the stitching forum to which I belong, and decided to carry on until the light effects threads in the fairy's wings gave me a headache. I really do not like stitching with these threads even though I use Thread Heaven.I have been very patient and am getting on ok.I will have a break after finishing the third wing. 
I am only going to back stitch the fairy because I like the softer look of the rose and foliage without it and tbh I don't think the back stitch is needed..the colours Joanne Sanderson chose for this design contrast so well that the petals and leaves speak for themselves..IMHO. Anyway enough talking.. here's a photo :)

I agree, the rose really doesn't need backstitch. It's beautiful as it is. Looking forward to your finish.
