Katzelkraft Inspiration March/April

For this month's inspiration challenge we were asked to use shades of green to symbolise the new growth of Spring with a touch of gold for the sun that (we hope) comes peeking through and some drops to symbolise the dew present on the ground in the morning.
I used Impress chartreuse, spring green and emerald and Archival library green for my shades of green with a few squirts of gold shimmer. The dress form is a KTZ stamp which I stamped directly onto the card and masked and the BG text is from the same plate. The splatter along the edges is by KTZ from the I am so special plate. The flowers are ready made paper ones with a Candi Dot centre and the flourishes are Marianne dies. Looking at it online I can't help feeling that something is missing even by my CAS standards. Does the BG need something else? Would ribbon help? What do you think?
Edited to add: Further to gardenpinks suggestion I stamped some more BG script.
It's amazing what a difference it makes! Thanks for the advice. 


  1. This is gorgeous! I rarely use green yet it can be such a pretty colour. Love the images too. I think the only thing I would add is extra BG script to the top right and lower left corners but then I'm no expert :)
