Could you do that one without the shadow, or perhaps just a small
shadow below? That appears to be the done thing elsewhere. Also,
Corinna's idea of toning down the edge to light grey seems a good one.
Light green might be worth trying as well.
Also, does this originate in a vector format, i.e. could you make it
available as an SVG? Or otherwise as a hires PNG? (768 seems good
because it's divisible by both 256 and 48.)
Finally, the white edge line at the bottom seems to be slightly too
low, because there are a couple of rough corners there.
