Happy Day

This is the card I have sent for my Postcrossing - Handmade card swap.
It is the last one until after the summer.

I really enjoyed making this card. 
Simple monochrome Black and White colour combo. 
The flowers are made with White Simply Pressed Clay, 
using the Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay molds
and the black one has been coloured with a Stampin' Write Marker. 
I layered the flowers on top of flowers punched with the Boho Blossom punch.
The doily is made using the Large paper Doily Sizzlit die.
The centre has been stamped in Basic Black on white using the Happy Day stamp set
punched using the 2.3/8" scallop circle and layered on top of a Black punched 2.1/2" circle.
The "smile" sentiment is from the same set.
The gingham strip has been stamped using the new Gingham Stampin Around Wheel.
Doesn't this look really effective!
The black leaves were punched using the Bird Builder Punch.
Embellishments - basic Rhinestones.
