Baby Girl Gift

Hi and goodmorning everyone its 2.40am so I shall keep this a quick post.
A little while ago I made this gift for a friend as she knew she was having a baby girl and now little Charlotte has entered the world I can share it with you.Firstly I apologise for the quality of the photos as my camera came out of a christmas cracker lmao(not really).
I had bought a template for this pram and box and thought it would be a good idea to try it out this is the first one I had ever made so please be kind with your comments heehee.
For the pram I decided I didn't want to leave it plain so I used a swirl stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder and the main embellishments used are this lace which I think is perfect for babies some silver border peel offs and some silver bows,I would love to know what you think of my first attempt.

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

Aww Lorraine this is so cute. I love how you have used the lace around the pram hood and also on the box. Good luck with the challenges. Debs xx

The swirl stamp with the lace works so well - good thinking & nice attention to detail putting the lace on the anopy outside & the lace on the pram basket on the inside - looks realistic.
