Play Date Cafe challenge

I love the challenges at The Play Date Cafe. They always pick fun colors! This time though we got to pick our own pop of color to use in a black and white card/layout. I used mostly scraps to create this so I don't remember the paper manufacturer. The flower is Prima with a black sticker center covered in crystal stickles (it looks green though in the pic). I took the quote off Pinterest and printed it out. I decided to make a card for my sweetie - one that fits in a regular envelope so I can send it to him at work. Everyone loves a little happy mail! Enjoy!
