Girlfriend Birthday card

Hi everybody :)

I made this a while ago for a friend to give his girlfriend on her birthday, my first 8x8 card so was strange working on a bigger card hehe, but it suited the image perfectly I think, there are just so many little details in it that I really don't think it would look good on a 6x6. She's a beautician and loves pink and white, so this is what I came up with :) I took inspiration from a card on the Make it Crafty website (where the background set is from) by Tracy Payne of Crafteezee, using a similar layout so felt I had to include that in my post too.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts: Roses, rosebuds, chrysanthemums, heather, cherry blossoms, cosmos daisies
Sentiment - LOTV Greetings Postmarks
Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily Die
Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish
Whimsy Corner Die
Papermania/Lucy Cromwell Papers
Coloured with Promarkers
Ribbon Girl: Pink lace, pearls, Stickles, Glossy Accents
Feathers and Tulle from stash

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
