DTC #169 "Long & Skinny" - Thank You

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble Challenge #169 "Long & Skinny" commemorating Summer Solstice, the Longest Day in the Northern Hemisphere, Trouble Maker wants you to create a LONG and Skinny card (slimline or mini-slimline). 

Twisted Sister's optional twist is to clude flowers and Double Dare says if you have created a slimline and included flowers you are eligible to enter our collaborating partner's challenge at Ellibelle's Corner I Spy with My Little Eye No. 16 "Something Blooming Lovely" and earn another chance at our random drawing.  

I chose to create a Mini-Slimline combining it with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #582 and using the Color Board at Color Dare Challenge #605 "Black & White + 1 Color". I have had three sets of "Love Story" (Black, Toffee and Silver) and I chose the black. What more appropriate for choosing this paperpack for the Color Dare Board, and since Twisted Sister wanted us to include flowers the Atlantic Hearts sketch was perfect.

Chose two of the black patterned papers for the background, used a white and black checker for the focal point and bordered all panels using white daisy cardstock. Decided to use one of the complementary white floral design papers to fussy-cut the florals because of the similarity to the background design papers. Used two shade of turquoise, colored the two larger florals and adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension. My other corner embellishments were a small floral and cut wooden heart set. Cut two black thank you sentiments, layered and then adhered to the middle of the floral panel.

Bordered the inside of the card base with the checkered panel, edged with a strip of black and fussy-cut, colored and adhered the small floral in bottom corner.
