I crocheted a Tulip Doily

This pattern link can be found at Doily-Of-The-Month.  It's the May 2011 Member's Choice.  We all get a bunch to vote on every month and that is the one most of us wanted to crochet.
I just now noticed that this doily grew to be 20" in diameter! 
The materials I used were sz 10 Royale Crochet Thread in Cream and a US sz 8 hook.

So, I was looking at it and thought maybe it could use some color.  Maybe purple tulips with green leaves?  Does anyone else have an opinion?  I'd love to hear!

National Peace Officers Memorial Week........

......starts today.
My first husband, James Michael Young, was killed-in-the-line-of-duty in 1983.  I remember him every day.  I am reminded of all the other officers who died, every year.  There is a website called ODMP that I became a member of....when I became a widow.

Please take the time to remember those fallen officers, today, yesterday and tomorrow.

On a more uplifting note!  The Give-Away is still going!  Please visit this post today!!!!  Who wouldn't want to be the winner?!!!
