That's what little girls are made of...

This is a card I made recently for an 18th birthday. 

I used IndigoBlu stamps 'Ella Bella' and a sentiment from the set 'Discover your Passion'
 It reads 'Courage, Determination, Strength - That's what little girls are made of'

The image and sentiment are made using gilding flakes and I've used stampendous frantage embossing powders around the edges of each to frame them.

The butterflies are punched out of black card with Martha Stewart punches and I've inked over them with a Versacolour Dewdrop inkpad. The flowers are inked in the same way and fastened together with a brad.
Finally I added some coppery coloured pearls from my stash and the number 18.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
