What a pane!

I'm not feeling this card - it turned out exactly how I thought it would and its part of my experimentation with CAS but I don't know, its just not speaking to me. Any ideas?
This card is my standard 8.5 x 5.5 in and maybe that's where I went wrong - maybe the proportion of the stamp can't support the size of the card.

I really wanted to use this set and let the pink girlie icing on the cake pop out from the dark shadows of the inside of the home. The trim actually mimics the trim of my mother's house as this was a card for her. I colored the ribbon with the copics to get a match. I decided to anchor the image with black mounted background to give the image some weight on the card. If you look closely you can see that I scored the card either side of the ribbon just to give a little more simple texture to the card.

Card size - 8.5in x 5.5in
Cardstock - Neenah, The Paper Source
Stamps - Clear Dollar Stamps
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Color - Copics - hopefully I will sort out my list soon - I wrote them down somewhere!
Accessories - Sakura clear glaze pen, white grosgrain ribbon.
