Raspberry Suite Color Challenge: Week 2

And here's where I went with it:

Sometimes you have to punt in order to make things work. Notice the small tag on the right-hand page. If you look closely, you'll notice the smallest bit of pink peeking out from behind the white Prima flowers. Since that was the only element that brought pink to the layout, I thought it ultimately stuck out like a sore thumb - stealing attention from more important page elements. Like photos, hello! So I covered the pink flowers with the white primas. What do you think? Mission accomplished?
