I think if you did more to the actual text to make it stand out a bit more you could go quite far with it. The background is not bad being white, but i can't help but think there is something else needing done to it to make it more interesting.

Are you from Scotland? just thought it was quite nice seeing the Thistle on a graphic.

Yeah maybe just making the font bold and underlined or something like that, because that font is very narrow ...

I would advise a strong drop shadow on the text, or a thin black stroke around it. Looks good though.

Im not too sure if I like the gradient on the text. I think a solid color would look better. Or, maybe it's just that the light green is too light on such a thin font. Makes it a little hard to read on a light background.

I drop down shadow would do fine or maybe a reflection.

Go with a reflections, with a gradual transparency, but if you do a reflection, don't use a drop shadow. Then with the reflection change the perspective to look like its coming toward you not just straight down.

Here just in case my discription was vague:

See the reflections. Ahh...there they are. I was wrong about the perspective, I doesn't look right...well it could look right but that might take a while.
