PTI Anniversary Contest Day 1... Betsy Veldman and Nichole Heady inspiration

This card is inspired by two of the design team members.  First of all Betsy Veldman took the crafting world by storm with her chalkboard technique.  That is what my black button card element is supposed to be.  Secondly, Nichole Heady never includes herself as part of the design team, but the rest of my card is inspired by her.  She has such a beautiful clean style that truly brings out the possibilities in the PTI products.  There are so many times when I wouldn't be interested in a stamp set, but then Nichole does something with it in her projects that makes me have to put it on my wish list.

I always have such a hard time knowing what to do with the button cards when I make them.  Any tips and tricks out there?  I look for card sketches but I have such a hard time not being overly literal with those sketches.
