    Does it look cheesy?

      I wonder if it might be too much. Maybe it's too big to be pinned.

      What about using just one of the two or do you want to use both?

        I liked the two but didn't know how to make them fit snug. Maybe I'll just do the flower alone.

          I think gluing the starfish on to the leaf would be great! Maybe skip the flower? I agree with Stephanie and think it might be a little much....Or it could just be the picture is too close up making it look bigger than it is?

            Yes, I think it is a tad much.

            Can you get a smaller starfish and place in near the bottom where the bling is?

              Here is one I just found. I think what you might need is a more simple flower or foliage (sp?). You have two very beautiful, strong features fighting for attention.

                  i think it may be a little too much. does it look funny if you were to put the starfish underneathe the flower?

                    I love the concept- but maybe pull the leaf down more under the flower, and maybe a smaller star OR move the star down,

                    Mess around with it alil, you'll figure something out.... show some more pix so we see what you got....
