Broad Ribbon - Scratchboard v.9

The ribbon is finished!  This session took one and a half movies.  I should be able to finish this in one more session.  Can you tell what still needs to be done?

I must go over all the white areas and boost some of them to even out the overall look of the piece better.  I want the ribbon and three main flowers to be the most visible and everything else to be somewhat in the background.  However, the stems are too light and seem to be detatched from the flowers, so I need to boost them a bit.
Then I will go over the whole thing with some diluted india ink to deepen the shadows where necessary.  Then... voila!
