Two Cards Today

Hi all today I have two cards that I am entering into challenges, but first I would like to share some good news with you.
I have been chosen as one of the new DT at Bearlymine I am so happy as I have always loved using Bearlymine papers they are so beautiful and inspiring.
Ok onto my cards which are both very clean and simple.  I have seen this style become so popular over the last 12 months and decided to have ago even though I have avoided this technique so far.
My first card I made at the request of my mum, one of my Nephews wife just gave birth to a baby daughter so this is what I came up with.
I have used one of my H&S stamps I stamped it twice in Versafine Onyx black and coloured with Copics I cut them both out and mounted onto an embossed die cut, I also used the accessory stamps the bow and the flower plus the sentiment.  The paper is Bearlymine, I added a punched border topped with white grosgrain ribbon and that was it.
My next card is something i have never done before which is to use just a stamp and sentiment on a white 8x8 card.  The stamp I have had for a few years but never used I got it in a swap so cannot tell you the name, but I thought that as it was a big stamp it would look quite nice, I did do this based on a sketch but the challenge for that has now closed.  The image and sentiment have both been inked with SU Rich Razzleberry ink. 
The challenges I would like to enter both these cards into are as follows:
Well I think that is it for today but I will be visiting later on hugs.
