We created one petal. Here is the tricky part, we can just duplicate the petal layer multiple times and rotate it around the flower's face. But that creates a few extra layers. We can avaoid extra layers by drawing in the Vector mask. Exactly how we did previously. Just click on the Vector mask thumbnail of the petal, this selects the path. Now press Ctrl+C to copy the existing path and press Ctrl+V to paste it. The path will be pasted on the same location where we copied it. Press Ctrl+T to transform it, set the registration point to somewhere to the middle of the flowers face. Hold by the corner of the bounding box and rotate it.
