Using Orange in "My Tweets"

Karla over at Karla's Krafts suggested a crayon yellow or orange for the flowers.  I hadn't thought of going that "orange" but figured it couldn't hurt.  I added orange centers to the top blue flowers and added yellow flowers at the bottom.  My problem now runs with the centers of the three yellow flowers.  The orange centers where really overpowering.  I didn't think to put them into the picture at the time.

Blogger is being a pain tonight and so is iPhoto so bear with me.  Here's the block with orange for the top flowers, the three orange flowers and under the wings.  My son said green wings looked dorky and insisted that they should be orange.  It's BOLD but I sort of like it.  Same problem with the centers of the bottom flowers.

If I add blue (the blue centers were done before the pot so they are the same), I need another blue or another color to work.

The orange works.  I think. Now, would orange "leaves" that you can see the outline above the birds help balance everything out for this bottom pic?

Any favs?  I'm leaning for the last pic.  I'd just have to test the green or the orange for the leaves.

If you happened to get this far, I have an appt. with a back specialist in the morning.  My chiro wasn't very helpful in explaining the x-ray results he got back other than something about my C1 and C2 vertabrae and mumbled about an MRI.  I figured I'd take matters into my own hands and made the appt.

BTW, don't joke about the possibility that your neck has been broken for the past 8-10 years w/o your knowledge after he goes over the x-ray.    He didn't find it very funny and insisted that my neck was NOT broken.

This chiro has done wonders though.  For the first time in almost a year I've been able to do anything.  I can walk around the stores.  I can stand outside with my DH while he uses the snow blower for up to an hour.  Just don't tell him to speed up while the blower is aimed in your direction.  It also hit me the other day that something was wrong and I couldn't figure it out.  Then I realized I haven't run into doors, walls, corners of furniture and stairs after a couple of visits.

I just love this block....and to me, it looks good any way you choose but I tend to go brighter myself.

Good luck at the Dr....
