early cover design - your thoughts?

Here is a proposed (and very early idea) for the cover. The other (which is under copyrite) has a young bloke's face at the top and castle ruins at the bottom. I like the castle AND the thistle. Imogen has suggested this one be second edition.
Publication date is set for September 2009 and the publishers are Penguin NZ.

it looks cool!!
when i first looked at it, i though the trees and stuff where part of it. then i figured out that the whole thing is see-through and it was the page background. You could use this but instead of the trees, have the castle.
Another thought was to have a crown surrounding the thistle. Mum agrees that this would look cool (the castle in the background and the thistle with a crown around it in the foreground).
