Paper Flower Violet or Pansy?

I like to quill and make paper flowers so I thougt I wouls try my hand at making cut files for this flower. It looks like a pansy to me but the flower picture I based it on called it a violet. All I know is that I thought it was pretty.
The embossed panel is Coredinations. (this was actually a sample insert from a craft magazine)
I shaped the flower pieces with a stylus and my fingers, scored the leaves, and chalked all of them with chalk pencils. The chalk gave a lighter effect than markers or ink.
 
Then I added Perfect Pearls.

The inside image is stamped and watercolored.
