MSE Keep It Simple challenge

Well I've tried my best but I must admit I found it very difficult and kept wanting to add more things! So I've ended up with a flowery topper I got free from a mag when I first started out, layered onto a few shades of purple, ribbon and some pearls. I know the pearls look a bit odd just plopped onto the flowers, but for some reason there was a weird hole at the top of the die cut , as if you are meant to hang it by a thread? It looked a bit naff just left as a gaping hole so I dotted a pearl on top then of course, you can't just have one so I had to add more. I'm hoping it looks ok though!
