Birthday wishes

This is a card that I've sent to my niece. I have to confess that a bit of upcycling has gone on here because I've partly used a card I made a long while ago - I took the image and other bits off it and added the panel with the pink glitter border, the oval with the vintage girl and the Craftwork cards sentiment panel. I also managed to find another flower to use.

This is for:
