This is one Photoshop vector layer. Yep, including the background and text. Not the prettiest thing, but I was just experimenting with some 1 layer techniques.
If you’d like to see how it was done, please download the PSD via the attachment above.
If you’d like to rebound, here’s some 1 layer rules:
1. No bitmap layers.
2. No bitmap masks.
3. Pattern fills are ok, but don’t cheat by sticking an entire image in there.
4. You can use a background solid layer, if you have to.
5. I didn't use CS6’s path strokes, but they’re fair game.

Well thats one way of getting Dribbble likes!
I dont get how you route the different colors when you have them in the same shape layer. Gradient?
@Jack Bingham Bribery will get you everywhere. Also, I really want people to get involved and share their tricks. We may as well all learn from each other.
@Anders Drage Yep. Gradients can be really powerful, if you have the patience.
Give 100 Likes looks like a social experiment of some sort to me, as it seems easy enough to build to me.
The contours are a path, with the texts added and subtracted from the base path, there seems be to be a base gradient layer and then a gradient overlay that acts as the yellow paint and red button.
@Prathyush Pramod The red button was done another way :)
The PSD doesn’t use any CS6 specific features.
@Prathyush Pramod I believe the new ordering only relates to the way they're presented to the user in the Blending Mode window and Layers panel — the actual layer effect order is the same as CS5. CS6 just makes the order they're shown in the UI match the order they're composited.

@Prathyush Pramod And now I don't know if I should delete my reply. :D
@Bjango ✎ Marc Edwards Looking at your layer styles list, red button being a Pattern Overlay is my last guess. If not, you get +1 from me.
Impressive - I've not idea how it's done, nor why you did it :)
@Prathyush Pramod The red button is a layer style stroke. I'll probably just post the PSD soon anyway, no matter how many likes.
@Russell Bishop There's no sane reason to do this, except to play with and become better acquainted with Photoshop.
PSD now available for download.

Made of one layer with a gradient and only two Layer Styles — gradient overlay and stroke (including the white background)
The iMac's wallpaper is made from the colours of the original Apple logo :)
Proof that's it's only one layer: http://bit.ly/JChJpN

This is a single Photoshop vector layer. No bitmaps are used in the document.
Due to the slightly stupid method used, the PSD is a bit slow. So if you’re going to check it out, expect long delays.

This is my submission to the single layer challenge. A burger.
It's a pity I couldn't do the sauces, but I think this is alright. :)
Nice, found a screwdriver path still in your doc! http://cl.ly/3V1T0P361z3S293t2v3W
@Jerry Gabra Oops. Yeah, that was part of a first attempt that didn't work out so well.
