Handmade Baby Congrats Card

I really like the collaged look of handmade cards. This is a popular style for good reason! There are so many things to look at, color, movement and texture. I have a hard time really making the kind of collages I want. I have trouble adding more because there is always this little voice in the back of my head saying, "That's too much, go minimal." Does anyone else have trouble adding bazillions of layers? One of my crafting goals is to get past that little voice!

Elements used: 
-big tag cut with Silhouette Cameo
-patterned paper
-plain off-white card stock run through a swiss dot embossing folder with the Cuttlebug
-inked the swiss dots with Tim Holtz distressed ink pads and a sponge
-little deer cut with the Cameo
-coral leaf hand cut from crepe paper
-adhesive chipboard button
-scraps of patterned paper cut into shapes
-topped off with vintage bias tape and pom pom ribbon (which I just professed my love for in this tutorial)

So what is your paper crafting style like? More minimal or layered? And if you are a layering pro, leave tips in the comments!
