Flash has limited writes in its lifetime. That is why we have special
filesystems for flash [1],[2] (e.g. jffs2).

ext3 (due to its journalling) might not be good idea for Sd-card. I think
ext2 would fare fine except that it might be left with corrupted FS in case
improper shutdown but at least it would not impact the life of the card.
