Here is my card:

I chose to use the pram image which I coloured with my Copics and paper pieced the pram with some Cosmo Cricket DeLovely DP. This was then matted on some grey cardstock. For the base I used some white cardstock which I edged on the front with my Apron Lace punch. I then used some more of the DeLovely paper and tied around some olive ribbon to cover the seam. The main image was then laid on top and some pink rhinestones added on either side. I stamped the sentiment from Baby Joy in Melon Mambo ink on a tag die cut and tied this to the bow with some white twine. Finally I added a pink flower stamped with Backgrounds By Design 1 to the bow centre with a glue dot.

On the inside I combined a few Baby Joy sentiments and stamped them in Old Olive ink, matting this layer on some grey cardstock. Some more Old Olive and Melon Mambo flowers were added to this strip. Along the bottom I adhered some DeLovely paper that had been edged with my Apron Lace border punch.
I am entering this card in the Inkspirations Challenge #74 for this week:
