Clean and Simple Cardmaking - week 1, card 11

Jennifer McGuire's video today showed how to add dimension to die cut shapes without using dimensional adhesive.  Unfortunately, I don't have many dies (other than an alphabet and number set), so I went with a small daisy shape that is in the alphabet set I have (from SU).

I also decided to do another yellow card - Jennifer used a tone on tone effect for her cards, but I didn't want a completely yellow card (I'm still taking baby steps when it comes to yellow), so I used a white panel, and sponged the edges of the daisies with yellow ink.  Here's the result:


I thought I was finished with this:
- and with Clean and simple, less is more rules.  However, I really thought it needed just something more, so I added the ribbon, and I'm glad I did :)
Thanks for visiting!  ;)
