Stamping 411 Square Card Challenge

I love making square cards and I really like this layout for the current Stamping 411 Sketch Challange. I just purchased a new (solid image) Gerbera Daisy rubber stamp (Rubber Stampede) so wanted to use it to make a card for a baby shower in the colors pink and blue.

I started with a 6" x 6" blue base card. I added some pink decorative paper and a bottom layer of printed cardstock (baby-themed). I added a blue polka dot ribbon across the center then added a smaller blue and pink square to the center of the card.

The Gerbera Daisy is a solid image stamp, so I colored it with Marvy markers and stamped it onto glossy card stock. I then die cut it with a circle die and attached it to the center of the smaller square. I added three gold brads to the top left side of the card and a larger brad to the ribbon.
