Tracey, this is very nice, all soft and summery - just the feel I am after - you are such a gurleygirl!!! I love the lilacs and purples.

Very pretty and feminine. Nice composition too.
A couple of suggestions to help give it more zing. One would be to change the colour of the cup/saucer to contrast with the pink flowers. I feel there is too much pink and the cup is lost.

Also the perspective of the cup/saucer is not quite right. The eclipse of the rim of the cup and saucer should be the same as the eclipse of the base of the vase, as seen in the image below.

Just some thoughts for later works.:wave:
