Help required...

Ok ladies, this is the recalcitrant ribbon box that I just can't seem to finish off. I know that it needs something more, but without pulling everything off it and starting again I'm not really sure what to do with it! I love the Celery DSP and the flower and the cute little butterflies that I pinched from my mum's stash. The ribbon across the top is nice too....but it needs MORE.
This is just a close up of the super cute Kaiser 'Wood Flourishes' flower that I smeared all over the Celery ink pad...yes I know that flowers aren't green but I liked it anyway! The sparkly in the middle is a large green rhinestone brad with the prongs sniped off. It actually looks really cute IRL.
So....what do you think? What does it need? I don't have any buttons the right colour...wish SU had Celery buttons.... I think I'm struggling so much 'cause it's not pink or purple...I never seem to have any problems with those colours!!!
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....and if you give me something good you might even get a really nice thank you card in the mail! Of course it would have ribbon on it...can you believe that 2 of these boxes just weren't enough....I still have a basket full of there a ribbon-aholic program I can join????

Thanks for your help {in anticipation that one of you is a great deal more creative than I am...and I know you're out there}.

Have a great day

My two cents worth. Suggestion 1, a narrower ribbon layed over the top of the ribbon. How about Old Olive? I understand that colour is begining to grow on you. Suggestion 2, a row of buttons, brads, glittered glue dots or white rubons.

I think it needs another colour introduced perhaps Groovy Guava as it needs a little lift (the double stitched ribbon would look nice). I used this combination on some love notes earlier today and they looked good.

I defer to the popular Miss Lauren on this one. I think your box is "simply elegant" :) I love the paper you chose(I LOVE dragonflies)!
