For this card I started with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of black card stock and layered this with a slightly smaller piece of white card stock.  For the border on the left I used the B149 Cuties 1 die from Cheery Lynn Designs and layered this to the card.  I added another layer of black card stock lining up the edge to the border.  On a smaller piece of white card stock I stamped the 3020 Daisy Swag from SweetStamps.com using Nightfall Shades Dye ink, stamping in a diagonal pattern.  I stamped the image on another piece of white card stock and die cut a portion using the XMC4 Circle Window Little Stackers dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and colored the flower using Creative Inspirations paints Canary, Evergreen and Chocolate.  I traced the same Little Stacker circle on a piece of  black card stock and hand cut this circle.  I used foam dots to layer the two circles than attached the black circle to the card.  I added a small piece of the Cuties 1 next to the Daisy circle.  I stamped the 3024 Nice Daisy in Nightfall ink on a small piece of white card stock and attached it to the card.  To finish the card I added black brads to the corners and adhered it to an A2 white card.
