Green and pink layers

Some time ago, I downloaded some digital papers from the member download site at Crafters Companion. This month's prompt for the challenge over at CC is 'Pink and Green', so I thought this might be a good time to put these papers, including the flowers, ribbon and topper to good use to make a fairly quick birthday card. I printed the papers I wanted, cut them to size, matted them on some fresh green cardstock and put everything on a white base card. To add some dimension, I used 3D kit and I finished the card off with my cream perlen-pen.

The layout is based on this week's sketch from Sketch N Stash.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafters Companion – #17 Pink & green
Whimsie Doodles – Think pink (cancer awareness or pink as the main colour)
Top Tip Tuesday – #56 Layer it
Totally Papercrafts – #89 Layer upon layer
