Peacock and Fuchsia Kusudama (Kudo design)

I recently picked up a copy of Kusudama Flower Origami by Kudo.  While the instructions are in Japanese, I managed to work my way through my first design.  Because it is Japanese, I am unsure what this design is called.

I used handmade Bangladesh Agate Marbled Paper from PaperMojo in Peacock and handmade Lokta from Hollander's in Fuchsia.
The construction was not as neat as I would like, but hopefully I will be able to get it tighter in later attempts.  I also, made by first attempt at a handmade tassel.  I was very lucky to get embroidery floss that matched up so nice.
