Cupcake and flourish 18th

Hi everyone, I'm back to share a card I've made for my daughter to give to one of her friends who is turning 18 at the weekend.

 The image is Bugaboo, coloured with promarkers and sakura glitter pens (the cupcakes are glittery). I coloured the cupcake wrappers to match the dress. I also coloured some self adhesive pearls using a promarker and added these to the corners of the image panel. The backing paper is from the Pink Parfait Forever Friends pack. I used matching lime green card to make the card base and all the matting, flourish, flowers etc. The flourish is by Cheery Lynn and called Tropical Flourish. I've drawn a border on the pink panel using a green Sakura pen and made flowers using both the pink and the green, adding small green flowers to the pink panel. I used a Spellbinders die to mount the number, which is a glittery peel off. Here are some more piccies...

 I would like to enter this in the following:-
