You brighten my day!

Hi everyone I hope you are all well and your week is going okay so far.  Good thing is its not long till the weekend and this Saturday the kiddies are going to nanny's so will be spoilt rotten and we will have the day to ourselves to do whatever we please.  Question is do we stay at home and cosy up with a takeaway, bottle of plonk and a movie or do we go see a film at the cinema and have a meal out, choices choices.  Personally I'm leaning towards a blend of the two; go out for the matinee showing at the cinema and come home and cosy up and a takeaway for the evening and that way I get to craft in the morning too before we head out (you see I've got it all planned you knew I'd have to get a bit of craft in there somewhere!!!!).
Anyway, enough of the waffling, I've come on to show you my card so here it is.  Not happy with this one I'm afraid and the thing is I can't actually pin point what I don't really like its just not right, now how daft is that.  I love the image I think its adorable and so pretty and girly and I so enjoyed colouring her up but from them on it just sort of went pear shaped.  I kept moving things around on my card base, trying this and that and then got up and left it because I was so frustrated.  Went back to it the next morning and still shuffled things around and this is what I ended up with, perhaps its the layout or maybe the kraft I don't know.
