Fixing the overworked painting

Last night I realized that fantasy flowers really are my thing. I'm not a botanical realist. So today for my painting session I took a previous practice painting (the one I said was overworked) and wiped off one of the flowers, painted another and filled it in with leaves, etc. Of course it has my signature ribbon. I always feel compelled to gather my bunches together with ribbon instead of into a vase.

Here's the fixed painting, an 8x10 inch oil on canvas.

And here is the original, overworked one.
