I used Daisy Delight and Acacia stamp sets from AnnaBelle Stamps for my first card.
I stamped two daisies, colored them with Copics Y38, YR04, YR09 then cut them out and layered them with a pop up square between each layer. For my ribbon...I used this cute orange striped ribbon from ABS. I ran a simple running stitch through the middle and pulled on end of the thread to scrunch and adhered with score tape.

STAMPS: Daisy Delight, Acacia (AnnaBelle Stamps)
PAPER:Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps), Black and Mandarin (DCWV)
INK:Momento Dye Ink Pad Tuxedo Black, Copics Y38, YR04, YR09
ACCESSORIES:Orange Stripe Ribbon (AnnaBelle Stamps), DMC floss, Needle, Score Tape, 3D-Dots (EK Success), Oval Punch (SU), Corduroy button (SU)
TECHNIQUES:Scrunched ribbon, Paper Tole, Monochromatic

This one was fun inking up BBD4 and my favorite Lil Michelle with Teddy.
This is a fun simple card. I stamped the solid square from BBD4 with Angel Pink then stamped on top in Rose Bud with Lil Michelle with Teddy. I love this new line by Basic Grey called Sweet Threads...I used a piece on the scallop circle. Love it.
