Tinybird pretty much nailed it on the head. IMO, you've failed to keep the original flavor.
Try to approach this as a prompt for illustrating a reprint of the card. There are very specific style...
I don't know, I think in the original the threat is created by the contrast of the seemingly nice and pure looking girl that doesn't look like she can do battle at all, and having her be totally cool...
