I don’t think it’s too “simple” per se, but it does seem a little small in size. I love the look of it otherwise, though – especially the pin!

I love the purple flowers!! My suggestions would be – can you get rid of a little bit of the plain green stuff and add more of the purple stuff? The green part just looks like grass to me. I think the pin is a little bit out of proportion where it is at in the arrangment right now, but that brings me to my other suggestion – can you wrap it with a bit wider ribbon (maybe 7/8″ and a few times around) and then put the pin on that ribbon?

@NAvery:  I second everything you said: less green stuff, more purple stuff, bigger ribbon, move the brooch.

@StephieBee:  FYI – small bouqs like this are called a posy and I think they’re awesome! They used to be a lot more popular in the past but bigger bouqs are more common now. But I like posies!

I think if you had a bit more purple to balance out the green it would be nice. I don’t really like the beetle, but that’s just personal preference.
