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 went with the Father's Day option
I decided to try keep this quite simple and if you know me then this is a challenge in itself.  The base colour is chocolate brown as is the contrast.  The papers are from the blue set of Papermania capsule collection.  I added a copic coloured brown ribbon and then placed the MSE sentiment and image on this.  I finished the card off with Pearls from the Hobby House - Chocolate Heaven and Corner Dies from the Hobby House shop and are by Whimsy

Here is the close up of the image coloured in copics 
the image is from the Joanna Sheen Unmounted set called

Bearytastic Day
