S.O.S. !!!

Happy Tuesday to all my Blogland friends! 
I'm in need of some help with this one!  When I was thinking about this card I thought up a CAS design but things always look different once they're on paper.  So... I'm at wits end as to what this card needs!  I tried the white flowers but it took away from the stamped image.  I tried ribbon but that just didn't work either!
My followers and the creators I follow are the most creative people I know.  Please feel free to critique this one and if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate every one!   If you can think of an embellishment, background paper or layout that would work better with this image... Let me know!
Here's a pic of the side view.  I had stamped the image twice with the top image embossed and cut out.   Using pop dots to secure the image, I set it off centre. 
Stamps Used:
Hero Arts & Stampin' Up! for the sentiment
Paper:       Unknown from stash
Pop Dots
Cricut:      George cartridge
Stampendous embossing powder
Bling:  Dollarama
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful work week!

I would like to thank all of my creative friends for helping me out with this one!  My car couldn't get home quick enough so that I could play while cooking dinner.
Everyone's ideas were fabulous and I could picture them all in my mind.  The hard part was making my mind tell my hands what to do.  The idea of embossing the background paper is a fab one!  We all know what happens when one uses sukwang (sp?) tape?  It's stuck forever!  The next card along this line will defintely be embossed!
I brought out the bling (my craft drawers have more than I do in my dress up drawer) and played with different positions.  After measuring here and measuring there I finally ended up putting the gems under the sentiment.  I think it turned out okay.
My mojo comes and goes with my hot flashes.  Some days it's as if I have  clear tunnel from ear to ear!  haha!  Hopefully one day all the shorts in the wires will join correctly .. for now I just feel like the scarecrow!
Time to post another one I threw together last night as it was raining cats and dogs...
Thanks girls!

I can't really see what is wrong with it it's a georgous piece of work as all of your pieces are but if you think if needs something how about putting some more gems on the opposite side of the ones already on just to mirror it just a thought

I think it is gorgeous just the way it is but if you feel it must have something I kind of agree with jackid.

I think it is a lovely card but like the others if you really feel it needs something I would run the background through and embossing folder for some texture. Lovely colors.

This is a beautiful card just the way it is. I don't think you need to add anything to it. If you are convinced it does, how about just one simple butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch? I think sometimes we all try so hard to add tons of things to our cards we forget that simple is beautiful too! I really do like it just as it is!

Google comments seem to be working today so I actually get to leave you a comment!

This card has its own special beauty just the way it is, but I would agree that you could add gems to the upper right corner or over the sentiment.

Great job!
