here is my inspirational piece, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)

I created a new baby card, and I went for a neutral look on this one. 
The base layer and contrast is a pearlescent coffee colour, with those gorgeous mono papers from Papermania, in the capsule collection, this is the beige/brown stack.  Using the MS punch, those lovely Memory box heart dies, some little Papermania matching lemon bows, three charms, a little rose and some small lemon pearls.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using those nestie banner/ribbon dies.

here are two of the charms, there is one under each bow

Here is the close up of the image coloured in copics
