I like how the focal points are the three flowers. My eye does not wander off the page, but is contained within the triangle shape implied by the flowers. I feel like the main focal point is the flower on the left because you have a yellow background against it which makes it really pop. To make it more interesting I suggest giving the flowers different poses since they all look like they are being viewed from a similar angle. Perhaps a foreshortened view on one of them? If you you want to make one of the flowers the main focal point you can make it bigger compared to the rest.

Think of different poses and size variation, it would make the composition more dynamic and interesting.

Overall great job! A lovely work of art.
