Thanks - Stamping411 & Challenge 119

Today is such a dull, rainy day that I just had to work with bright colors, and certainly the colors selected for the summer palette in the new summer Occasions mini catalogue are bright!
Again, I completed 2 challenges with 1 card - Stamping 411 sketch challenge http://stamping411.blogspot.com/2011/04/saturday-sketch-challenge-201.html and challenge 119 with the LNS Yahoo group - the power of 3 - to use 3 embellishments on a card or project.

I started with a Daffodil Delight base, then cut and embossed a Tangerine Tango layer with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  A 1/8" Daffodile delight taffeta ribbon was attached to the lower end of the Tangerine Tango layer before attaching it to the base card.
The Beyond the Garden designer series paper was used as my main image.  I embossed the centers of the flowers with Wild Wasabi embossing powder and with a Two Step Glue Pen applied dazzling diamonds to the outside edges of the flowers.
The DSP was matted with Wild Wasabi card stock and applied to the Tangerine Tango layer with Stampin Dimensionals. 
The sentiment was inked with a Melon Mambo marker to highlight just the word "Thanks".  I then sponged the edges and matted the Whisper White card stock it was stamped on with Melon Mambo paper.  The sentiment panel was attached to the card front with dimensionals at one end and snail adhesive at the other end.  Rhinestones below the sentiment completed the card.

I love how you let the dsp shine on this card by keeping the other elements toned down. Gorgeous!
