Tilda with blanket

Hello there crafters,
last week I was discharged from the hospital. The operation went well and the metal paque has finally been removed from my leg. I still have pain, but I hope it will numb as time goes by.
It has taken me a while to complete the Tilda card I want to share with you today. It's for a colleague of mine who had a baby girl some 10 days ago whom he and his wife have named Alice. It will go with the bib I'm cross-stitching with the baby's name on it.
I've chosen one of my all-time favourite colour combos for this cards, that is pink and brown. Dark brown always looks like black on my photos, aarghh!! Some nestie dies, optical designer paper, a Martha Stewart heart punch, some ribbon and flowers made the rest. It's a rather busy card compared to my usual standards, but I think it looks nice, and then it will be hand-delivered, so no postage worries this time, hooray!! LOL
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.
Happy crafting, Vittoria
