Layered Inspiration - OCC, PP114, & SRC143

Wow, I need to find me some more time to stamp!  I am starting some fall adult ed classes in a couple weeks, so that's gonna force me (plus I get paid!) to get some stamping done! 
This card is for Our Creative Corner Photo Inspiration Challenge and The Paper Players Sketch Challenge 114. It also qualifies for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge 143 which wants us to use our Big Shot & diecuts. 
I mainly focused on colors for my inspiration in the OCC challenge.  They did ask that we used polkadots and at least 2 buttons somewhere on the project.....I got the polkadots down, but only 1 button.  I tried and tried to figure out how to get another button on there, but putting one or more on there just seemed like too much!  So, I didn't quite meet the requirements.  I really like the end results anyway! 
I havn't had a chance to play with The Paper Players for a long time, so I was happy to use this fun sketch.  I inked the three stips of cardstock with versamark ink and embossed them with clear EP for a little extra texture and interest. 
I cut two flowers with the smallest die in the Floral Frames Framelits, crumpled them and layered them together.  I cut a small circle of Summer Starfruit and glued it onto the back of the button, so you could see some extra color behind the button.  Next, I wove a little snippit of Pool Party through the button to add the third color.  The whole thing is layed on a bow made of bakers twine. 
Here's a whole list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: Layered Labels, Everything Eleanor
Ink: Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Black, and Versamark
Paper: Same as ink + White
Accessories: Floral Frames & Apothecary Accents dies, Black bakers twine, Flower button, Clear EP, Oval punch, Perfect Polka Dots EF
Thanks for taking a peek and have a fabulous day!
