Pretty in Pink?

Hi, hope everyone had a fab weekend!
My card this morning is very Pink & I do struggle with pinks.
I made it for my God Daughter, Poppy who was 5 last week.
I 'm not sure if I have made it a bit too grown up for her though,
perhaps It could've done without the flowers!
I have used:
Magnolia ~ Maid Marion Tilda
Wild Orchid ~ Flowers
Papermania ~ Basic Pinks
Cats Life Press ~ Sentiment
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ Punched out No. 5
E.lm ~ Leaf punch
SU ~ Jewellery Tag Punch (for Poppy)
Sparkly Gel Pen
Tim Holtz ~ Distress Inks
Sewing Machine
Thanks for looking

I think this is gorgeous for a little girl - so pretty and the princess Tilda is perfect! :)

Sometimes you just have to 'go for it' with pinks! lol.

I love the little '5' embossed tag too.
