Question Need opinions on birthday invitation.

I am in the process of making invitations for my niece's 3rd birthday. Of course they need to be mailed oh, like, tomorrow! I borrowed the You're Neat stamp set and wanted to use that but this is all I came up with. I used Polka-Dot Posies for a OSW type deal and then cut it out to fit the front of the pocket card. I used this cool color combo that Jantink used in a card and I am making all the cards with the different animals all in different colors but in all the same group colors; Pink Passion, Apricot Appeal, Only Orange, Pixie Pink.
Also, I think that for the rest of them I will use an eyelet for the ribbon instead of a brad unless that will look wierd with 2 brads on the flap and then an eyelet, are you supposed to use all eyelets or all brads??
I am worried that the stamp sets don't go together. If you have a better idea that is quick I would love to hear it! Thank you sooooooooooo much!
Here it is

I think it is highly super-cute! The colours are fun, the images are fun, and pocket cards are just FUN!! When I am making cards for the under-12 set, I change my 'design principles' to focus on fun rather than on my standard aesthetics. I think even for the over-12 set this would be a great card.

Mix up the brads and eyelets all you want. I think and eyelet would be preferable on the pull out because there aren't as many pointy parts. Brads would probably be OK on the outer card though.
