Needle Point Pillow Makeover... Mabey

I have three vintage needlepoint pillow that i got at a thrift store. They have pretty rose needlepoint work on them but some lace i am not to fond of. I took the lace off of one and put some colorful trim around it.. Tell me if this is just to much color or is it making the needlepoint stand out more.  I don't have enough trim to do all three pillows to match, but one does not need it.  The first photo is the before photo...

I like what you did to it. It makes it prettier and gives it more color, but then I am not to partical to some shades of green. It didn't enhance the needle point the way that they had originally did it. I was always told if you are going to change something to make sure it enhances your project. Take care and I hoped you enjoyed the weekend.
