Clean and Simple Challenge

I just love the Clean and Simple Blog!!  I decided to try my hand at yet another card for this week's challenge:

Here's a picture of the sketch:

I decided to take the 2 darkest panels, and make them one piece...they ARE the same color in the picture:)!!  I used a piece of black paper, and embossed with stripes. I used a strip of daffodil delight and with versamark, stamped polka dots and embossed.  I used a flower stamp by stampendous, a label stamp by PTI, and a sentiment by Hero Arts.  I colored the dots on the flowers with daffodil delight marker and dotted with diamond glaze.  I decided that rather than add the embellishment to the right lower corner, I'd use a rhinestone on the "o" in  "hello" as my "button".  I popped up both the white and black panels as well as the's a different view:

Oh, I just LOVE these layouts:)!!!
Thing I used:
Stamps: Stampendous, Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics and Label Basics
Paper: PTI white, black and Daffodil Delight
Ink: stazon black, daffodil delight
Extras: striped embossing folder, clear embossing powder, diamond glaze, yellow rhinestone, pop up dots

Thanks for looking, I hope you have a wonderful day:)!!
