Your flower is nicely done but I don't like the base.
Many people do flowers, though more usually as part of "habitat" for bird carvings (naturally, flowers are usually included in carvings of hummingbirds).
I also used a Foredom flex-shaft, but only for roughing out. They're too clumsy for doing delicate work. If you are seriously going to get into this, I recommend shelling out for a micromotor handpiece unit like an NSK or Gesswein. They are expensive, but will make things much easier. I believe that Foredom also makes a handpiece now, for considerably less money.
Good luck with it. My user name, btw, is the old falconry term for a male Sparrowhawk (the accipiter, not the American kestrel to which the name is sometimes misapplied).
