Possible convention swap card?

After reading the July/August Papercrafts magazine, I decided to make my own version of one of their cards.  I really liked the Floral Generosity Card on page 33 - they highlighted the juicy color combo of watermelon, blue rasberry, and pineapple. In Stampin' Up colors, I translated that to Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pacific Point. 
Obviously some of the glitter fell off of my flowers and onto the scanner, because it is not this messy in real life! To make this card, I used some scrap paper to create straight line masks.  I used the Manhattan Flowers stamp set to stamp all the flowers.  I cut a 1/2 inch strip of Daffodil Delight and inked it in Pacific Point for the side strip.  Finally, I finished it with a sentiment from the new hostess set Here for You and a few punched flowers with glitter (that is now on the scanner!!!) 
If you were going to the Stampin' Up convention would you want to swap this card?  What do you think?  Shall I make more?
