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" =)

Quilled lilacs photo frame

Yesss! I made it! I have finally completed my lilac sprays which I began quilling 2 years ago =))) Homyachok challenge blog has a new quilling challenge: wedding flowers (any quilled wedding related project featuring flowers). And I remembered my wedding 5 years ago, and as the deadline of the designers' project was luckily close to the date of our anniversary - I made a photo frame as a gift for my husband.
We got married on the 22nd of May, we chose this date because late May associates with blooming lilacs for me. So the whole wedding theme was devoted to lilacs (check out the label "wedding" in my blog to find a scrapbok with photocs from my wedding if you like). I chose one pic from the wedding itself - the biggest one and 4 little photos - one from each anniversary. "Love story" photo shooting in lilac garden in 2008, Paris - Champs Elysees in 2009, the only photo from the 2010 anniversary of us together - a pic of our shadows having a romantic dinner in an expensive restaurant on the top of a skyscrapper, and 2011 - another photo in lilac garden, almost 3 of us already =))) it's a pity, but this anniversary we had no pics at all %\ And it's a pity that my lil lady is almost 8 months old and I have only 1 or 2 decent pics of us together, as if i'm not her mom at all =( I strongly need a good photoshooting of my baby and me together!..
Well, back to the quilling =)))) The frame itself:
