How would you crop/edit this?

I think this could be an adorable photo but its just too much clutter right now. Any thoughts on how I could improve the composition by cropping? I am open to how I could have improved it before I took the photo as well.

Ok here is my take on it. For some reason the colors just looked flat to me. As you can see the tree has some green moss (or whatever that is that grows on the tree other than leaves)...all I did was just highlight some of that.

All of these are great ideas! I like the texture and the green that you brought out in the tree!! I am still working on my masking skills and will try what you've all suggested.

Okay, here it is sharpened, reduced noise, masked her out and masked the entire background to add texture to the tree and cropped. I also tried to make the bubbles pop a bit more. I am not sure its any different though!?!
