fathers day for DH

well here is the fathers day card that i made for my DH. it is missing something, or something. i just don't like it. i got this asian themed stamp specifically for a card for him, got some origami paper to use as background, used twine on corners of stamped image to "tie" it together, used bamboo stamp in old olive on card base, used in versamark and embossed in pharaohs gold on black card stock. it still needs something.... i just don't like it. i think where i went wrong was actually me trying to make it better. i colored the whole scene with colored pencils and went over it very carefully with odorless mineral spirits. thought it needed something else so i did the flowers, the flower stems, the fish, and the clouds in sakura gel pens. i think that actually took away from the card itself. well, i know now for next time...
