Collage Mania

I finally began work on my Collage Mania pieces last night. They are not complete but I thought I'd post one because I'm looking for some feedback. Despite trying to stay with a more moderate color scheme, I found hot pink just calling out to me! I added a hot pink X and then some hand stitching as well. Now I'm thinking about a whole hot pink border. So, my question is this? Am I going overboard. Would it better without any pink at all? They need some stitching and ironing but wanted to go ahead and post before I take it any further.

The tree is from a photo of my husbands (which I have permission to use), that I edited and changed a bit digitally. Then I created a Thermofax screen from it. I really like it and find myself using this screen often.

Look forward to hearing comments so I can move forward!

Thanks in advance!!!

IMHO it needs the pink.
If you check my blog later this evening or tomorrow you will see how I use hot pink (magenta) as my "neutral"!

I like the hot pink border, and the little toches of pink within the piece. Great job!

I'm so glad you posted this! I have been in stuck-mode for my Collage Mania project for almost a week now. I like the pink border, but I have a weakness for bright colors. I also really like the trees - they make such a subtle background!
