A cot for Eleri

Hi all
 I have been asked to make a 3d cot for a little girl called Eleri ...[welsh name]  for her christening so here it is...i have used my own template from memory having lost the one i bought from arty farty many years ago...It has turned out larger than expected and the front of the box that houses the cot is a full A4 sized piece of card !!!!
I have used gorgeous ribbons,buttons  and pearls from meiflower crafts to embellish the cot and marianne d dies to wmbellish the corners.The quilt was edged with a martha stewart punch and the heart shapes are also a punch...The framed name tag is a sizzix die from stampin up.The little butterflies on the mobile are also a die from SU . the tabs at the top are the hanging sign die by Tim Holtz .
