Cat is coming up Daisies

I've been experimenting with acrylic painting and mixed media lately. I"m really getting into Gelato's by Faber-Castell. Today I'm sharing my latest painting, I started by painting a purple background with some flowers, flowers as best as I can anyway.

Then I thought it needed to pop so I tried to some Gelato's to outline the flowers in black and to create a vignette around the painting. I thought it also needed more flowers.  Still it wasn't "right".
See the giant gap between the flowers?  It NEEDED something but what?  A bird house?  hummm maybe something bold so the flowers don't overpower it, maybe a cat, a black cat, tall and skinny with bright yellow eyes to match the daisy centers?
Here's a before and after
