The frame in overlay doesn't look so nice in this sig. Also the left side of the sig look a little bit weird.
The illumination effect that you apply look really cool. The only thing that I would change in this sig probably to make it look nicer is the space between characters in the font,and of course, that left side. Besides that, it looks awesome mate. Good job.

1. Avoid overlay borders
a) Looks tacky, despite it looks "okay" on this particular signature.
b) Try using a 2px border (Select whole canvas -> Edit > Stroke...)
c) preferably black border.
P.S Probably you already know this.

2. Blending font better
a) Attracts a lot of focus
b) Try using the text settings, drop shadow etc.
c) Experiment on placements for text and fonts
d) For this particular signature, the clipping mask style for font blending could be good.

3. Experiment
a) I say this a lot, but maybe try using color adjustments, gradients to help in the creativity, who knows you may get a good result
b) Adjust the focal point, try sharpening the render used, or blurring the background.

What I think:
Good signature, i'm not sure whats been done as I don't know what the original render looked like, looks like you've added some lighting effects, nicely placed if i'm right in thinking this; and also the contrast, despite being slightly off, is okay. For me it's too "green" although i should be impartial. However, as discussed, i would definitely adjust the color settings, maybe a orange~purple gradient at soft light 30% would look good here. The text is average. One thing that strikes me is the border though, definitely snatches part of the focus as does the font, i would probably deter from using overlay at all costs unless necessary.
