White on White Motif and Seam

Today I worked on my block some more and finished the motif (for now, beads come later). Sharon B. suggested in her Encrusted CQ class that I just marry the colors into the block so that's what I did. I added the leaves in an in-between ivory color and then I added lazy daisy petals using the same 7mm variegated cream silk ribbon to the seam treatment.
I just love vining leaves! I'm trying to think of another way to add some more vining leaves in the upper left. I also need some suggestions on how to treat that lace in the upper left as well! I had originally thought I would lace it with ribbon but I tried to see how it would look and the gaps are just too big (using 7mm) and it looks weird!

Are those openings in the lace? How about weaving something (yarn or other textured fiber)of the same color you're spreading around through the openings?

That is just gorgeous. You are making me want to try out a white monochromatic block.
