Oval with Red, Orange, and Yellow Stripes

I find ovals challenging to use with my cards, tending to look formal and a bit too static for my eye.  But this card has movement with its bold and bright curving stripes.  The polka dot strip grounds my oval to make a strong focal point.  These shapes work well together, and I'll try the layout again sometime, maybe with bright green and turquoise colors. 

Note: the gray is background, not part of the card.
