Cutie Pie DT Card - Krafty Cuties

We have a new challenge for you at Cute Pie, this month our theme is "Krafty Cuties", meaning we'd like you to use kraft and make something cute.  We're sponsored this time by Crafty Ribbons and Robyn's Fetish, meaning you have two chances to win a prize!
I was intending my DT card to be a little bit "kraftier", the pink somehow took over!  It's for my brand new baby niece, Sarah, who was born on the 23rd of December, a sister for Reuben who will be two on the 13th of January.
I bought this super cute Lili of the Valley stamp at the SECC in October in anticipation of this card, and popped it aside ready to get colouring when it was needed!  I used my Trusty Promarkers to do the colouring.  I die cut the topper with a Grand Spellbinders die and layered it onto a Floral Oval, cut from kraft, also with a Spellbinders die.
 The pink papers, patterned and plain are from a First Edition pack, called Sweet Owl, to which I added some kraft card.  The shaped card blank is from Craftwork Cards, and the sentiment was stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp from a Vintage Sentiments set.
The bunting was cut with a Joy die, and the lettering for it was die cut with an old Kwik Kutz alphabet set, originally for the handheld Squeeze machine, but the dies for that go through the Grand Caliber fine!
The flowers and foliage were made with Sue Wilson Cornflower dies, and Heartfelt Creations Arianna and Blazing Poppy dies, all with kraft coloured pearls in the centres.
The final touches were some pink lace, a layered bow, and a sprinkling of pink gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
