Baby Card for a Sketch & Inspiration Challenge

I made this baby card with the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge#327 here, and the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge#47 here.
I was drawn to the lion and the stripes in the plate so I went from there.
I started with Pumpkin Pie card stock and added some DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights Stack. I used scraps of Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Bashful Blue for the stripes. I colored the lion from Fox and Friends with my Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers and added a mouth with the Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker. I colored one of the party hats from Party Hearty with my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin' Write markers, cut it out and popped it up with a Stampin' dimensional. I stamped hello baby from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Pumpkin Pie, punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch by 5/8 inch Large Oval punch and layered it onto a Pumpkin Pie piece punched with the 1 3/4 inch by 7/8 inch Large Oval punch. I popped the ovals up with Stampin' dimensionals too. I added a Bashful Blue(retired), Daffodil Delight and Old Olive brad. Finally, some 5/8 inch Old Olive grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Fox and Friends, Party Hearty, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Patterns DSP Brights Stack
Inks: Pumpkin Pie Classic Pad and Stampin' Write Marker, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers
Accessories: Bashful Blue retired Brad, Brights Brads, 5/8 inch Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, 1 3/8 by 5/8 inch Large Oval punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8 inch Large Oval punch, Stampin' dimensionals
