Birthday card

I have been asked to make a birthday card for a young lady to give her Gran. She was very specific with all elements especially wording. Inside the card reads "You are not getting older you are getting more precious!! I love making cards because you can add any special touches like these.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with pink and then white card. I die cut the valance and trellis in pink using Cheery Lynn dies. I printed the sentiment and die cut it with a Presscut oval die from a nesting set. I die cut a pink oval using the next size in the nesting set. I attached the valance to the matt and layered card base  but attached the trellis to plain white card and then cut around it and attached the rectangle to my card with foam pads. I used the topper from a Papermania set and completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
