CAS-ual Fridays Color Blocking

This week has been a blur and I've had less than zero time in my basement craft corner, so I'm easing back into things with a card made in a color block style a la the CAS-ual Friday Challenge CFC7.  
These are some of my favorite colors and polka dots always make me happy.  I like how the patterned paper almost looks like a cutout overlay.   I wanted to put a rhinestone accent after the sentiment, but didn't have a dark hot pink one to match.  Definitely need to work on my embossing skills, but I still like how the card came out!  
All my guys are going to the US Open on Saturday, so hopefully I'll get some time to play with paper this weekend.  I still have to catch up on my Father's Day surprises, but I'm going to sneak some crafty time too.  Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a great weekend!
