I have a brand pattern that I want to verify is not too close

Resolved Question:

I have a brand pattern that I want to verify is not too close to that of another designer and hence infringing any copyright issue. Please provide your legal opinion.
My pattern: https://www.dropbox.com/s/11yvh3tcbs44dcz/leaf%20only%201280%20x%20720.jpg?dl=0
Other designer: http://www.orlakiely.com/assets/www.orlakiely.com/store/thumbs/Scribble-Stem.jpg
Thanks

Hello Heather,
In my opinion, your design does not copy the other designer's pattern as yours is a different colour and the leaves are also of a different shape.
Hence, you are not passing off your design as the other designer's
Hope this helps
