A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Birthday Card for a Female

A Gem of a Challenge is back with first challenge of the new year, and the theme is "Birthday Card for a Female".
We have a slight change to the prizes for our challenges this year, you can still choose two digi singles as the winner's prize if you like, but you now also have the choice of two card topper kits, or one card topper kit and one digi single.
I chose Teddy's First Birthday, from the Pink Gem shop for my DT card, a first birthday card for our little great niece, who was one on the 2nd of January.  I coloured the bears with Promarkers and paper pieced the number with some Papermania, Hot Diggedy Dog paper.
 The patterned papers used for matting and layering are Lili of the Valley, Perfectly Pastel, a lovely, girly pack, to which I added some bright pink card, to pick out the stronger tones in the papers and give the card a lift.
To embellish, I added some layered ribbon, with a matching button topped bow, a sentiment stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp, a little birthday present, made with a Crafter's Companion Die'sire die, and a trio of pink gems.
