Magnolia Down Under Challenge 11

Over on MDU the challenge is to make a 'thinking of you' card using a Magnolia image.
I have recently received some new new magnolia images in a swap with Merry and I have been looking forward to the opportunity to colour them in.
the background paper came from my 'stash' - which is slowly getting smaller, especially now that I have sorted it into different colours and put them in stacking baskets. It makes the creative process a little bit easier now ;-)
Image was coloured in using watercolour pencils and highlighted with chalks. It has not turned out the colour I was imagining when I started, but I think I am happy with it. Image was then layered on marone leathergrain card and mounted onto background with mounting dots.
Background paper was layered on marone leathergrain card. Thinking of You rub-ons were placed on tag, edges highlighted with chalk and threaded on ribbon from 'stash'.
I am thinking it needs a fine border around the oval - I am hesitant to add anything more, but it feels 'incomplete' to me. What do you think?
EDITED: I am so pleased - my card made the Top 3
