    do you think the orchid is too much? Like.. if I switched to a smaller flower it'd be better? It isn't that big in person but I can see how they're competing.

      I don't think the orchid is too much, but the starfish is pretty big. One of the items needs to give.

        If you just went with the orchid and found maybe a smaller starfish you would be fine. I think the orchid is pretty and doesn't look huge.

        I guess what I was getting at with the competing thing is 2 factors-size and the bright colors of the Orchid. Neither of them blends into the background do they are both in the "spotlight"

          Can you put it on a shirt and then take a pic...perhaps it will help visualize the size.

            I changed the flower but I might just do away with the flowers all together.. I put my hand next to it so you can kinda see the size

              I like the idea, but I do think it is large. I think either the starfish or just the flower

                  I'd nix the leaf and put a smaller starfish under the flower, where the bling is...like on the flower stem. That's actually what I want to do, but I don't think FI is crazy about it

                    I would try taking out the flower-leave the leaf-and slide the starfish down.
