CASE and Pastel Colors

This card I made with a some different challenges in mind.
One of the inspirational sources is the CASE card over at Inksrpirational: I used a large flower, a butterfly, pearls, a banner for the sentiment, a doily for the round shape and layered panels.
I also used some yellowish accents, with the flower, skeleton leaf and striped paper.
The DPs are from Prima. I layered them onto pink cardstock. I stitched around the edges with golden thread. The doily has a coat of pink metallic rub on. The frame is a chipboard sticker from BasicGrey. The hand cut banner has a heat embossed birthday greeting.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #29 CASE
2)  Crafty Sentiments - Female Birthdays
3) Artistic Inspirations - Pastel Colors
4) BasicGrey - Flowers
5) Incy Wincy Designs - Things with Wings
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

I am doing a Happy Dance.....I love this card, it seems quite different for you-perhaps it is the girly pink?? I love that flower with the thin net leaf and the way you have placed the frame over the doily positioning this to the left-so much adorable detail Pia! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational x
