Paper Smooches - Best Buds Card

I'm really happy with how this card turned out! For a while in the middle of making it, it wasn't looking too hopeful. But I think the final card worked out well.

I'm entering this card into two challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Blog's Wednesday Challenge: Fantastic Florals
MFT Color Challenge 63.

Paper Smooches: Best Buds Stamps
Paper Smooches: Best Buds Icons Dies
Designer Dries Clear Adhesive: 159723
Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles: 352854

Other Materials
pop dots; cardstock: peach, folded to A2 size, and dark mint green; embossed Recollections Spring Dream paper pad: light mint green; Spectrum Noir White Cardstock; Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers in: FS5, CR3, BT2, and BT4; Colorbox Archival Dye in Wicked Black; Recollections Color Splash Watercolor Crayons; water brush; EK tools Mini Corner Rounders Punch Set: 1/2"; Sizzex Big Kick; Scotch Advanced Tape Glider with Acid Free tape; and a MISTI

Use the black dye and stamp the two flower pieces on white cardstock; line up your chosen sentiment in the appropriate box and stamp. Die cut the stamped swath of flowers and the dark mint green paper with the same die. Add a bit of water to the jar with a blue watercolor crayon and your water brush.

Cut the white cardstock surrounding the jar of flowers somewhat close to the edge of the stamped image in a rectangle. Use the corner rounders to trim each corner of the rectangle. Cut the dark mint green cardstock to a size slightly larger than that of the white stamped rectangle; trim the corners with the corner rounders.

Cut the embossed light mint green paper to 1/2" smaller than the size of your card. Use the ATG to glue it in the center of the card. Again using the ATG, glue the white stamped rectangle to the dark mint green rectangle, and glue both of them to the card in the lower left corner. Offset slightly and glue the stamped sentiment piece onto the dark green mint shape of the same die cut. Use pop dots to affix that piece to the card for a bit of extra dimension.
