Lovely! Love the blending in the stems.
The line looks good too.

In other paintings, (not this one, since it's so nice) you might also consider adding to your bag of tricks a way of covering larger areas as well rather than following the contour or edges so much (ie. one swath can do it for a couple or so areas). Reason being is that the eye notices contrast - eg. white of the paper against the magenta. And since there's so much contrast happening, it distracts from that delicate line that lets see the parts of the flower in context clearly -- just a wee bit. Sometimes we're okay with that and sometimes we want to make it a bit softer. So you can see it's about the artist's choice how you want to present your idea.

But these are getting so good now I can see you're over the hurdle and into the technique quite smartly.

Nice sketch pen wash style. Very elegant flower especially it makes me free spring air around me and I could smell the fragrance of this. :)
