Applique update - pillow case

I have the centers on the two flowers now, and although it does not show up so well here, the top flower has some embroidery work done on it.

The picture below is a bit easier to see the embroidery on, I took two strands of black floss and made crease marks out from the base of each flower, then went around the center piece with a V shaped stitch to tack down the sides and add a bit of detail to the edge of the center of the flower.

I need to get the embroidery on the second flower, then decide if I want to do any detail work around the outer edges on the flowers. I want to add some detail veining to the leaves as well.
