Mixed-media collage (updated with new picture)

Hello

I've been working on a collage for my friend's birthday and was wondering what people think. It's meant to be two cats watching butterflies. I'm thinking of getting a gold marker pen to outline the cats and butterflies but was wondering if people think anything else needs doing? She likes sparkly glitsy pretty things but I don't want to build it up to be too raised as would quite like to get it mounted/framed for her.

Any constructive feedback welcome.

PS sorry for yet another terrible photo!

I have no suggestions but I really love this! It's such a nice thing to do for your friend :)

Thank you both so much for the replies; I'll definitely take on board your feedback, I hadn't thought to put veining/detailing in.

Thank you both <3

I finished/framed it. Have mounted it poorly so will try and fix that a bit. I put a little gold veining in some of the butterflies but I don't think my veining skills are good! Hope she likes it.

Thank you so much for your lovely replies! She did indeed like it and suggested I enter a piece into a charity auction (Mind).

This is the piece. Sorry that I've taken photos of it in bed in the dark. It's very imperfect but it's due in by tomorrow! The theme of the auction is 'relationships' and the title of my piece is'To the Moon and Back'.

Thank you all so much for your kind support and feedback. I've taken it in today so fingers crossed people will make bids on it at the auction, which is a month away until launch.

I'm going to think about how to develop the general technique further as well.
