Girly Girl Birthday Card

I have a friend with a Birthday this week. She is the ultimate in "girly girls" so I wanted a sparkly card for her. You can't tell from the pictures but I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist to give the paper flowers a beautiful sparkle.
Happy Birthday Brynn!

Working on a card design for my convention swap cards.

In the back of my mind I've been doing this for months. But today I finally put ink to paper.
I have a bulk pack of Sophia paper (which, if you know me at all you know how much I love pink and green together).
I gathered some of my favorite stamp sets and started playing. I wanted to try out a "new" techniques so I got out my re-inkers and baby wipes and did puddle stamping. I really like the look it gave the bird from the Tweet stamp set.
Please keep in mind that these cards are simply samples. There are some finger smudges (puddle stamping is messy) and the paper is a little off center. Once I get the design down, I'll do them in an assembly line as to keep the mess to a minimum.
I'd LOVE your feedback and any ideas to improve on the design.
