creating album cover for talented little girl shy

My friend Ilana has asked me to do some art for her album cover that she will be finishing in the near future. I did her Myspace a few months ago, after some frustration; as I don't use myspace let alone have I ever created a myspace layout/background. We did have big ideas at first but turned out the coding was a bit too complicated for msyelf. You can view her space here : Little Girl Shy. Check out her music while you are there.. She's quite good. Anyways, so on to the album cover. We decided it would be best to do whatever she liked most and not try to have it relate to the myspace artwork as we could always change that later on. She liked the Lenka album art work and send me a few other album cover that she liked. I found it very hard to not copy the Lenka style as its very close to my own and what I might have come up with without seeing the artwork before hand. So I did try to steer clear of it.. I'm not sure how successful that was.

Here is what I've come up with so far.

I haven't heard back from her what she thinks yet.. but hopefully it's a step in the right direction.

I think I will change the tree a bit; the shape is a bit weird for me. It also needs a bit of cleaning up but other than that I quite like it.
