Did I succeed in the challenge I was set?

Last night I was asked if I could make a nappy cake. I've made a few of these, but then I was told that the person wanted the nappy cake made to resemble a pram! Well, my first port of call was Google, then I watched a video on You Tube (where would we be without modern technology these days)
This was my first attempt at a pram shaped nappy cake. I'm not terribly happy with the corners, there are safety pins securing the blanket, but I don't want to risk damaging the blanket by securing it more tightly either. 
There is a sock either side of the rabbit, tucked under the arms.
I hope the lady who asked for it likes what I've made - if not, I must hope that it sells at the Christmas fayre I'm hoping to have a table at

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave

Purple & Silver wedding

I recently made a card which a colleague saw & then asked me to make her a similar one
First Edition designer paper, silver & purple mirri card. Embossing folders used for lower half of card & on 1 heart. Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, EK success punch (from Craft Obsessions) used on spine area 
Detail of hearts. Promarker used to colour pearls. Ribbon (cut from clothes) coloured with Promarker. 
(Apologies for reflection of my hand)
Most flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, stems twisted around a cocktail stick
