Green & Pink Floral Medley, take II...

Sometimes I create new designs and they're just perfect on the first try. Many times, something's off. Sometimes it's just a little thing, other times the whole design just has to be scrapped. When I first developed this design, Green & Pink Floral Medley, I was quite taken with it. I loved the soft green with the flowers and the pink. And yet...there was something not quite right about it. It took me awhile to figure out the problem (and even longer to fix it) ~ the pink outline on the flowers was too dark, too strong, as you can see in the "before" design directly below.
I lightened the outline and the coloring and as you can see from the "after" shot at the bottom (and the close up at the top), it's much better ~ softer and prettier, with the pink as an accent, not a dominating force in the design. Once I re-open my shop, this design will be available in fabric and wallpaper. I just received printed samples of this in both, and they're really lovely. I'm so happy to finally get this design right.
What do you think?

Love your 3rd design the best as a background. But that's my opinion, since it's yours -you decide:):)
I came from Pink Saturday and love your design. I think the updated version is better because it isn't as busy. The fabric is lovely.
