"One For The Girls" Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I really enjoy joining in with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, and haven't managed to do the last couple so I'm pleased I managed to do this one. I have sat and looked at it for some time and feel that there is something missing! If I work it out I will amend and re post later.
I have used Penny Black Stamp called Daisy Surprise. I have (as usual) coloured with watercolour pencils. I have used a piece of Bubblegum Boutique stripe paper from Doodlebug and have cut the wonky line freehand and stuck it to the bottom of my card, I have then followed the line of the wonky cut with the Prima flowers. I then placed my stamped image on the card using 3d foam (see previous post as to why I'm boycotting silicone glue!) and then added gems to the centre of the flowers. The greeting was a white rub on, this is the element of the card I'm not sure of??? I may have to re think it!
It may come as some surprise to hear I have used Doodlebug glitter to enhance the flower. I have used PVA glue for this as it keeps its shape (takes hours to dry!) but does give a 3d glitter effect when dry.
