i think this is a nice start. what if you only had the top foiled butterfly and got rid of the other two? you could balance the foil by adding some foiled specks/flecks along the top left of the photo - hopefully that makes sense ;) it might look nice... it's hard to say without actually seeing it done. i'd also add a slight stroke to the month and year, as well as the lines. honestly now that i'm looking at it, the watercolor background is SO pretty! i'm wondering if you really need the butterflies at all?! if you got rid of them, you could move everything up a bit giving the bottom type some breathing room and you could still add a few flecks of foil if you really want to (that's pretty big trend right now that seems to be doing well). Good luck!!! i really think you've got something here :)
