"Big Sister" card

I needed to make a special "Big Sister" card for one of the little girls in my daycare. She has a new baby brother at home!
When I saw the Stamptacular Sunday, "Pink-A-Licious" challenge, I thought it would work for this card. I struggled a little bit with "not making the carriage blue"! I decided to go with white and I think it works.
The sweet little girl image is from the Paper Doll Design Shop
I used Pretty In Pink and Rose Red cardstock from SU.
I paper pieced the little girls dress, socks and headband with Stampin Up designer paper.
I used my new "MFT" Perfect Petal Trio die cut with the same SU paper and Rose Red to make the flower. The center of the flower is SU.
The background designer paper is K&Company. I love their paper!
I made the butterflies with my Beautiful Wings embosslits Die.
The scalloped circles are Nestabilities.
The Big Sister Tag is stamped out with my SU tag punch and decorated with BLING! I used white lace scraps for the carriage.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
