PTI Blog Hop: May

Hi friends,
Today, I'm participating in:
 This month, we had this inspiration pic:
So here's my card:
 I used the color palette of Simply Chartreuse, True Black, & SS white. I tried to incorporate all the patterns & layers in the pic. I embossed all the panels of paper with CB & T!m embossing folders. I also did not use any pattern/printed paper. To create the harlequin, I inked up that embossing folder with black ink & embossed a piece of white cardstock. The flower is from the Friends 'Til the End stamp set cut in two pieces so I could layer them along the edge of the paper. In between the layers I added foam tape for dimension. They also got a coat of Angel Wings Shimmers (which is why it looks wet or shimmery :) then I added some pearls with my viva pen. The ribbon & button are from my stash. The sentiment is from Just the Ticket.

Here's a peek at the innies:
 I stamped the flower (2nd generation) in the corner & added the sentiment from Inside & Out: Birthday.

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

I'd like to join in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew: Dimension
