Please Pick Me

Papertrey Ink is hosting Stamp-a-Faire 2013 on Saturday, August 24. It's an all-day event but I can't participate because it's the first day of our two week vacation and I'm going to be gone, gone, gone. Happy for vacation, not so happy that I'm missing this event.

The only way I can participate is for a member of the Design Team to pick this card that I made a while back for a "remix". I'm saying right now "Pick me please!". This card needs help. There is something off about it but I can't quite figure out what it is. I have a couple of ideas on how I could have done it better (always easier to figure it out after it's done), but I would love some expert help.

Here is the project I'm offering for consideration:

Supplies I used:

Stamps: PTI Mini Blooms and Think Big Favourites #3
Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White
Ink: PTI Sweet Blush, Lavender Moon, Enchanted Evening; Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark
Other: American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder Leaf
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Snap

Thanks for considering me.
