Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.

Stamp the daisy image in the center of the small, vertical white rectangle.

Use the brush tip of the Terracotta Tile Marker to color in the center of the daisy.
Adhere the stamped and colored daisy rectangle to the center of the detailed, floral rectangle cut out.
Put a couple of small strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive vertically across the center of the front of the belly band. Remove the protective backings and adhere the detailed, floral die cut to the belly band.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 1 large gem from a sheet of Gilded Gems making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the daisy flower.
Cut a 4" piece of the Fine Art 3/8" Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card so it is centered over the bottom of the stem of the stamped daisy image.
