A baby's cot

Hi everyone I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Its been a little while I know but my little extra to go with my sister's baby card has taken a tad longer than expected to finish.  Its done now anyway so here's a few piccies. 

I had a go at making a baby's cot.  I used a template which I bought year's ago and had never used so I decided to dust it off and give it a go.  

There was a lot of cutting involved and I decided to distress it by inking all the edges (and there were a lot of edges) and the side bars have all been beaded which took ages but adds a little extra.  I love the hanging mobile I wasn't sure whether I was going to do one at first but I'm glad I did now.

I made a cot bumper and quilt and used ribbon/lace to edge and soften it all.  Not sure you can see so well but I have added little pearls to the top of the blanket and pearl hearts on the ribbon and bottom of the blanket.  Things don't feel finished to me if I haven't added ribbon and a pearl or two!!!

One last piccie to show another view.  I used the same papers as I did for the actual baby card in my previous post.   The template was an Arty Farty design template.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay thats me done for today.  I've just finished baking an apple cake and now need to make a chicken and leek pie for tea.  Mmmm I just love autumn with all its warming bakes and smells and soon be time to pick my sloe berries to make my sloe gin for Christmas - yum!.
Take care folks and happy crafting.
