Thanks for your help!
I like to use the "Eyeball Method" by looking at the Copic Color Wheel. Say my main color is RV13. For the flower center I would look at the color wheel and find something in the same ring in the same number family from the yellow family like Y13 and then pick something in the same ring in the yellow-green family like YG13. That usually works for finding something that looks nice together.
