You are the child I've always asked for - case file #122 at CSI

Case file #122 at CSI is up, with a beautiful inspiration photo and awesome palette:
This is my take on the challenge:
A photo of my oldest, taken about 6 months ago on a vacation we had in Eilat. He has so many qualities and I couldn't dream of a better child. The title says in Hebrew: "You are the child I've asked for", and it's the nave of an Israeli song.
This is how I solved the case:
Sketch (by the talented Em Stafrace) - I've changed it a bit, beacuase I wanted to use one photo, rather than many small photos, so I've minimized the upper banner, which was made from scraps of the big banners under the photo.
Scheme - all colors are here.
Evidence - actually I used all the elements here :) flowers, leaves, metal (brads from my stash and StudioFourteen40's flair buttons from Boys will be boys set 5 & A happy life set 5), ribbon (baker's twine to hold the upper banner), something transparent (StudioFourteen40 vellum dots set 4 & vellum file tabs), grid pattern (on the two green pp), cursive font (some of the block alphas of the title and my handwritten journaling tag), circles, fabric (gauze), labels, tags and sprig.
Testimony - hidden journaling on a tag, handwritten in cursive, and it says: "Even in my best dreams I couldn't ask for a better child than you are. Your talented and wise, loving and caring, considerate and helps me in so many ways. You have a big sensetive and loving heart and I hope you'll remain like that forever. You are the child I've asked for, the one I always dreamed about. Love you, Mom. April 2014."
I would like to enter this lo to current challenge at The Crafty Scrapper, which is 'use layers'. this challenge is right up my alley, as I always use many layers on my laouts :).
Here are some close-ups on the details:
