Dotty Colorful Layered Fragments!

As you may of guessed from the title,  I have combined 2 of my usual challenges again this week
Compendium of Curiosities which is Pg 57 and Simon Say Stamp'n'Show some 'Polka Dots'
This is totally NOT my usual style when it comes to cards but i wanted to make it so that the fragment stood out on the card. 
I used the gorgeous corner stamp from my Stempelglede 'grunge collection' set, The dots are an embossing folder.
I'm still feeling it needs something in the bottom right hand corner though!! Is it just me being me.. What do you think? I've never been very good at minimal cards, always want to add more and more and more!

Very Cool, Minxy! Love the polka dots with the fragment, love that stamp, and you did a great job with the coloring. As for the corner, what about one of the Idea-ology metal corners? Thanks for joining the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!
