Inspired By #40: A study in White coloring

Hello! There is a new challenge at Inspired By All the Little Things
I found the inspiration photo to be soft and dreamy. LOVE that tiny red Ladybug in the center of the cream framed by the light shades of pink. So I decided to see if I could color a cluster of flowers where the main bloom was left white. 
It was more challenging than I thought! However, This video by Sandy Allnock was VERY helpful:))
Here is my card:
 It did not turn out as SOFT as I had hoped, but the peachy/pinks remained and the middle bloom is mostly mission accomplished-ish:) Always room for improvement!
Here is a chart from this post from Jennifer McGuire of the Ziggys that I used. The floral image is  from Concord and 9th:

Hope this inspired you to play along with us at Inspired By:))

Our Guest Artist this week is: Donna Rudy from Krash Scrapper

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the DT
