Card for a little lady

It's been a while since I took part in challenges, but this week ColourQ challenge blog has offered a color combo I just couldn't miss!!!
Link to this challenge: colourQ #142
So I'm trying to enter with the card I made for the first birthday of one little lady. Her name is Agata, I got to know her mom a few onths ago, we walk with strollers together. I don't know about the little lady, but her mom loves the combo of soft blue & yellow! So I thought it would be a great idea to make a card for them and enter this challenge.
I'll start with the inside of the card:
Chipboard frames (it was a part of some board game - the playing squares came in this "net", I cut it and painted yellow!) contain a dress, some toys, some flowers and a "best wish for the FIRST birthday" =)



Check out some close ups:
A dress. Three types of ribbons, some yellow crocheting, seed beads, microbeads and a little mebroidery. See the ruler to understand the size =) The dress is a little bigger than 1".
Two bright flower and a heart (stickers) with a cat, I made this cat in my fave technique "thread quilling" - well, I don't know how to call it since I've never seen that anywhere else. I used silk threads to make this smiley cat. Agata has a favorite toy - a blue cat called James. I tried to make this fellow =) Tail is crocheted too =)
And the outside of the card:
The colors are not very good though =( the sun is already down and the card appears to be a little greener than it really is =( The girl's name is cut through and doubled with yellow vellum. 3 tiny flowers and two gems to supprt the color scheme.
And that's the side view:
Hope the girl and her mom will like it =) and enjoy as much as I enjoyed making a card for them!
I also want to enter a challenge on Frosted Designs - make your own embellishments. I made a dress and a cat =)
And One stitch at a time challenge - Summer dresses; it's better to use some specific stamp in that challenge, but I'm not a stamper and I don't really care much for the prize, just want to show my card with a little summer dress =)

Thank you for looking!!!
