Black, White plus one color!

HI friends,
I have a card to share today and I am really late in posting this on my blog. This card was created for our new challenge at the Lulupu blog where the theme is ..Yes, you guessed it. Black ,White and one color of your choice, so here's my take on the challenge theme. Have a look :

As you can see, I decided to go with yellow as my pop of color. I have done a layered card using an embossed background, paper and dies to create the whole look. I have tried to keep the embellishments to the minimum so as to make my three colors the hero of my card .The flowers and leaves on my card are die cut and just embossed using a stylus to give them dimension the small rose buds are also handmade using the same flower die which is the Joy! Crafts Floral flourishes (Flower 3).I have done dry embossing on my background using embossing folders and layered a die cut in the centre to frame my sentiment.I really went a little die crazy on this one :D.

Supplies used :
Cardstock - Yellow cardsotck is from The Craft Shop store, Black and White from stash.
Embossing folders - Provocraft Polka dots folder, Itsy Bitsy Flourishes folder.
Dies - Spellbinders Die-D-Lites Fancy Label Tags Four, Spellbinders Classic Scallop die set, Joy! Crafts Floral flourishes (Flower 3), Sizzix Leaves, Flowers and Branch die set.
Punches - Jef snowflake punch
Stamps- Hero Arts Find Joy stamp set, Inks- Versafine Onyx Black and Distress ink- Mustard Seed.
Black pearls.

Challenges entered :
Imaginations- Embossing
NBUS : #2 (I love to hoard dies and the Nbus I used on my card is the spellbinder's D lite die framing the sentiment and also the polks dot embossing folder )
Penny's Paper Crafty- Embossing
Cuttlebug Mania - Anything die-cut
