For my card I chose blue, die-cut, heat embossing.  Enjoy!

Assembly & Trix:

*  Emboss one side of the Thick Basic White card base with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder.

*  Die cut the Smoky Slate layer with the second largest ornate layer die.

*  Adhere the DSP to the ornate layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

*  Stamp the flower with Memento Black ink and die cut using the Scalloped Contours die.

*  Colour the flower with Pool Party Stampin' Blends Markers.

*  Stamp the sentiment and heat emboss with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder.

*  Adhere ribbon to the sentiment piece.  ***Trix, I choose to cut the Basic White piece to just fit the sentiment.  Then I created loops with the ribbon and adhered them to the back of the sentiment piece with Stampin' Seal adhesive.  Next adhere the sentiment label to the card with dimensionals. 

*  Embellish with a sequin.
