A (very) girly & pinky layout

Edit: this lo won at MyCreativeScrapbook forom
Jan challenge - make your own embellishments!
Thank you, MCS' ladies!
Being a mom of two boys, I hardly make girly/pinky layouts, but the new color combo at The ColorRoom caught my eyes and I knew right away I'll be using the photo of my BFF's daughter and me, years ago. I also knew that my new Echo Park dp (Victoria Gardens) I got as a prize from Leeanne at Artful Delight, with it's pink/green colors, is the perfect one to use here.  Here's the palette:

This lo is mix&match cs, dp and the embellies - K&Co.; Echo Park; Basic Grey; American Crafts; Prima. I just pulled out my stash with the right colors and then started working them together.
A lot of fussy cutting; stitching (real on the pink cs, faux on the plum cs); distressing.
For the light green strips, I used Fiskars border punch, and then strung two embroidery strings through the holes; on the connection points I adhered pearls.
Here are some close-ups:

I would like to enter this lo to these challenges:
sketch - # 190 creative scrappers (I turned the sides, to fit my photo)
something new plus BG's product - basicgrey challenges (the fussy cut birdcage is from Porcelaine 6x6 pad; the little tag and the punched butterfly are part from a box making kit I got long time ago and I don't know which collection they belong...)
bright colors (plus a butterfly/angel/fairy) - flutterby wednesday
stitching - the pixie cottage; paperplay
spots and/or stripes - simonsays stamps
at least 12 items on your lo - get creative (mine are: 1. photo; 2. white cs background; 3. pink cs background; 4. tag; 5. real stitching; 6. faux stitching; 7. fussy cutting of flowers, butterflies and birdcage; 8. embroidery string; 9. doilies; 10. plum circle cs; 11. punched stripes; 12. punched butterfly; 13. pearls; 14. bling; 15. distressing the edges of the pink cs; 16. velvet alphas for the title; 17. stickles (on the flowers)
Thank you for stopping by!

כאמא לשני בנים, אני לעיתים רחוקות ונדירות מכינה דפי אלבום ורודים ונשיים, אלא שהפעם שילוב הצבעים ב-The ColorRoom פשוט קרץ לי. ידעתי שאשתמש בתמונה שלי עם הבת הבכורה של חברתי הטובה ביותר ובדף חדש (יחסית) של Echo Park, אותו קיבלתי כחלק מפרס ענקי ונדיב ביותר. 
הוצאתי עוד דפים וקישוטים בצבעים המתאימים, והתחלתי לעבוד. בדף הזה יש שילוב של חברות שונות - Echo Park; American Crafts; BasicGrey; K&Co.; Prima, וכמובן אותיות 'תוצרת הארץ' ממסטיקים. הוספתי עוד מפיות תחרה, חוטי רקמה ופנינים מהאוסף הפרטי.
שבת גשומה (נפלא) וקרה מאד (פחות נפלא), שמזמינה הרבה יצירה...
תודה על תשומת הלב ושתהיה שבת נפלאה!

מפתיע ומקסים!
באמת צבעים מאוד לא אופייניים, אבל התוצאה ממש מקסימה וממש ממש "את". מתי אני אצליח להעמיס כמוך?

This is lovely and the papers are wonderful. I particularly like all the embellishments cut out using the same papers.
