Not so happy with this one

I was disappointed when I put the final touches on this - I did flip the sketch so the bird was facing mid card rather than the edge - does this bother any one else?  But in doing this I misjudged the size of the vertical strip - too much dotted area and not enough of the other patterns.  I plan a re-do.  The bird image was a single stamp from a yard sale - it is SU but I have no idea of the name.  Coloring is with water color pencils.  Papers by Lily of the Valley.   I distressed the edge of the circle and the edges of the papers. The Washi tape strip is from a new roll.
