Pretty in Pink (and Orange!)

Hello, second post of the day! This card is for a special little girls birthday. I just love some of the Sugar Nellie stamps and this one is called ' A little Birdie Told Me'. She actually has a little bird sitting next to her but for this particular card, i decided to leave it out! Also, this is the first time that i have used this border punch. I punched the border on pink cardstock then layered it onto orange to give it a different look.

I would love to enter this card into the following challenges:
