All done?

I added the beads all around in the blue for the holly berries.  I have trimmed and shaped the beard and cuff on the sleeve.  I am still trying to decide if I want to add a real bow on top of the stitched one.  I am afraid it will become the focal point and I don't want that to happen.  Thoughts?

I think that an actual ribbon would overpower the rest of the design, since it's all very delicate.

I agree with B. How about outlining the edge of the bow with a darker color using DMC floss? Or maybe a pink metallic blending filament. That will lift it slightly without overpowering anything.
