Another Less is More 61

I wanted to play some more with the same technique I used on yesterday's card - spritzing water on the stamp before stamping it on the paper.  Like yesterday, I sponged some pale pink ink on the card base before stamping the flower from Hero Arts real flowers.  Like yesterday, I still prefer the image after it has been stamped off once on scrap paper.  I love the soft and dreamy look, and I think this particular flower from the set is perfect for the technique.

I played around with adding something to the center of the flowers, but everything from buttons to pearls seemed too harsh and in the end I left it as is.  I also played around with putting the panel on a colored card base, but I liked it best on the white.  I think I'm rather boring that way! I keep looking at this card and the last one trying to decide if I need to jazz them up a bit.  

I'm entering this as a second card for Less is More 61, inspired by the soft pink petals of this beautiful inspiration picture:
