Here is my progression. The one on the bottom was first (I didn't like that pink either). The one on the left was second. I decided it need to be a little bigger. The one on the right is the one I went with.
One of the other elements to the block are these little darlings. They will finish at 3/4" - I'm glad to say I only need 64. I made them slightly bigger and trimmed to size - not too bad.
So that's where I am at the moment. I'm getting ready to add some leaves, and it's been rather frustrating trying to get the right shape and size. I'll have more to share soon.
Have a great weekend,
