[Hard Rejected] Plz Review for reasons of rejection

i submitted my first PSD template to themeforest with lots of hopes. i read all the upload guidelines but probably missed some points because after being in queue for 11 days. they sent me email that it got rejected and cant resubmit.

Also i found out that there is a item in envato market by name “flower shop”, can it be the reason?

Screenshot here:

Thanks for replies guys.
This is what they sent me in email.

Unfortunately your submission Flower Shop PSD Template isn't ready for ThemeForest and cannot be resubmitted as it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or Envato Market policies. In order for submissions to be considered for sale they must be of high aesthetic and technical quality, unique to our library and cannot be in violation of Envato's policies. Regrettably the Help and Quality Teams are unable to offer a critique or feedback on your rejected submission.

I cant see any specific reason for the same, thats why i asked here in forums. its really frustating. plz help.

Improvements that I noticed:
Blog dropdown:
So much of white space below 'Hurrik’
Why all these are right aligned?
Search bar: Lens icon is not sitting in the vertical centre of the text field.
Flower shop logo looks like a freebie.
Hero slider: So much of text content and looks heavy. Maybe, make the slider taller, and remove some texts.
Layout of ‘Fresh Arrivals’ and ‘Colourful Choices’ are the same? maybe try something diff.
Having a floral pattern background for a bouquet of flowers confuses the user. Maybe, keep a plain background & full-width.
CTA shadows. Kinda makes it look 2012’s
Deal of the day: Why illustrations? why not real life pics? If you are giving importance to the flower pot inside, make it look bigger.
Welcome: Typography needs improvement, the spacing is a mess.
Footer: Remove the inner shadows.
‘A little tagline…’ Make it a real tagline.

Hope this helps.

thanx for reply vishnusathyan,
i will keep all of your points in mind, but can these be main reason for my hard rejection?

Its not a perfect PSD design but not so bad. Here you have my review:

  1. Incorrect spacing on slider

  2. Improve the typography and fix the top-bottom-left-right spacing

  3. I rather make these as buttons

Does your submission contains one PSD file only? For me its seems to be too less.
