Birthday Card For A Teenage Girl

I made this card using the sketch from this week's challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz. The image that I used is called All That. I created the patterned paper by stamping two different sized stars using black ink onto a sheet of white cardstock. I colored the center of each star light pink. I created the flower using a retro flower punch. I punched each flower out of white cardstock and inked the edge of each petal with a light pink ink. Then layered 5 flowers together and added a black pear to the center. I slightly curled the edges of each petal to give the flower a little more dimension.

I'm also enetering this card into the following challenges:
