CAS or failure?

A very special card from me today. I had originally printed this digital image and accompanying sentiment (Hamlet PigWit Think Spring) by From the Heart Stamps onto watercolour paper to do some watercolouring, but when I showed it to my husband he said it might be fun to leave the image completely uncoloured. Now that set me thinking...

I've seen others use uncoloured or largely uncoloured images a few times, and although I admired the crafters who did this, I didn't think I would have the guts to do it myself. Until now...

Since I wasn't going to do a lot of colouring, I printed the image again onto Neenah solar white cardstock and only coloured in the clover with 2 green Promarkers. I rounded the top right corner and popped the panel up using some foam tape. And now I'm debating with myself if the card is just fine as is or whether I should have added a little more colour...

My husband likes the card a lot and thinks it's just perfect. So what do you think of my card? Is it CAS or a failure? Would you add more colour?

Anyhow, I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
From The Heart Stamps - March stamp of the month challenge
Dynamic Duos - DD96 (I was going for green and pink, but ended up using green and white)

Cards in Envy - Anything A2 goes (no bulky cards)
