Friday Sketches Picking Flowers

I didn`t know whether to post this card or not but finally I decided to ask for your advice. I just can`t decide if I like the card enough to give it to someone or not. I keep looking at it and wondering if I should take it all apart and try again. Your advice is really needed...what do I do?

The sketch is from Fridays Sketches and I found it a very difficult layout. I used the picking flowers and tree stamps from Magnolia. I used my Prismacolored Pencils for coloring on Tilda and my markers on the trees. To get the multiple flowers on the ground, I masked out the rest of the image stamp except for the flowers. I think that worked out OK. To color the flowers I used glaze pens on the pink and blue flowers. This gives some dimension to the flowers and some shine. The yellow is canary yellow in my markers.
The base of the card is SU`s Kiwi Kiss and the other papers are from the Pocket Full of Posies from DCWV. I used the labels one nestibility and one of the corner designs using Regal Rose scraps. The flowers in the corner are Prismas. The just because sentiment is from the Urban Design stamp set from Papertrey.

I have not entered this card for the Friday Sketches challenge yet. Please let me know if it looks OK or how to change it. I`m wondering about the papers I used. I like the image but the rest is questionable. Looking forward to some advice.
