I love adding extra colors into my mix and that's exactly what I did with the Begonias.
 Instead of full-on pink or yellow, I inked up the centers of the Begonias with fushia and orange.

For the background, I stamped the outline leaf in the background and added the stamped die cut.

Thanks to the size and shape of the Begonia, it is very easy to stamp the flowers!
