Easter Motifs - Part Three

I have a little more progress to show on one of my Easter motifs.  I have finished the three flowers, I filled them in with seed stitch in two different pink colors.  I like the effect the two colors give. 

I have also finished the flower stems.  Now onto all the leaves and grass and of course the eggs:

I am trying to choose the right colors for the leaves and grass.  So far, I have tried stitching some in the same green as the stems but I thought was just too much of the same shade without enough definition of where the leaves and stems meet and cross.  I also tried a darker shade that ultimately didn't work either.  You can probably see all the stitching marks along the leaves! 

I have been working with these colors and now I think I may try a combination of a few of these:

I will be sure to post some pictures of the finished piece with whichever greens I choose!
