Baby boy card

There's one lady I've been acquainted with for a while. We used to walk in a park together: me - with a baby carriage and she had a laaarge belly. Finally her little baby boy has arrived! She named him Nikita and I made a little card for them.
The card isabout 10 cm by 10 cm (4"). Blue cardstock, quilling strips (blue collection №23, but 15 mm wide) were used for the iris-folding frame. Some manual stitching, a little doodling, some quilling and a few seed beads. The main element - a bib; name "Nikita" is emboidered with silk threads and has silk handwoven lace. The size of the bib can be seen on the next photo:
The sentiment reads "Be happy!". That's it. Thanks for looking!
