Commissioned birthday card

I've been asked to make a birthday card A5 size, pink/purple girlie with 60 somewhere on the front - I hope this fits the bill.

I've used a card blank that was already decorated with an oval centre, which I've used to stick inside the card, but can still be seen through the aperture. I stamped on to the oval with one of my favourite Funstamps sentiment inking with stazon vibrant violet.

The flowers are a mixture from stash, including the pink and white Docrafts ones and the centre Craftime ones. I thought the three little lilac flowers at the bottom corner would counter balance the 60 at the top. 

Colours are for Crafts4eternity R96:

Difficult to show the colours accurately in the photos - they look different in the two different attempts:

This is for:

A card a day
Hiding in my craft room 70: you pick - choose your three favourite colours - purple, lilac and pink
Lexi 77: special birthday
Penny's 100: birthdays
4 crafty chicks 114: a day to remember
CRAFT 179: birthdays
SJ crafts 10: birthdays + option: circles or ovals
Bearly mine 59: flowers galore
Paper pretties Monday 63: bling
Crafts and me 108: bling it up
Hotshot craft 12: bling it on
Catered crop: ac-cent-tchu-ate the negative
ATCs and cards with attitude 26: add a sentiment/anything goes
DL.ART thankful Thursday: anything goes
Lady Anne's Friday is sentiment: anything goes
Anything goes 79: anything goes
Amusing challenges: anything goes
Make it Monday 113
Inspire me Friday 83
