Gift for newborn

Our dear neighbours recently had their 5th child - and this time it was a girl!! After 4 boys, you can only imagine how delighted they all are with the arrival of little Holly. My gift to them, apart from the card and the usual baby clothes, is a Memory box.
























The card was made a few weeks ago, as soon as Holly was born, but I only got to make the box yesterday. [You probably remember this very same layout being used in previous cards for newborn.]

The box (23x23cm) is red, white and pink; I decided to deviate a bit from the usual newborn/baby colours, I thought this would be a nice colour combination anyway, and together with the baby image, matching the card, it goes fairly well in my view.
Hope you like both the card and the memory box.
Different views of the box:
