The May challenge colors were inspired by a visit to the Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park located in San Francisco by Jaycee Gaspar. Jaycee is the Inspiration Challenge Host. The colors are Parrot: Tropical Garden, Marigold: Golden Sunset and Purple Wine: Rose Petal.
My card was created using the beautiful inked color combination for the three die cut layered flowers and accent leaves, a debossing plate for the background and a mini sentiment banner. The photos highlight how I created the card.

PHOTOS OF THE CARD AND DIRECTIONS
Altenew ink pads used to create the shades of inked card stock starting with the lightest color on white card stock, I continued to ink white card stock to create the darker shades for the layered petals.
Altenew has a paper pad of shades of green card stock, I used inked paper instead for the leaves.
Here are the inked layering petals I inked for each layered piece, the leaves and the tiny pieces for the center of the flowers.
I inked the leaves and then used the lightest shade of green ink to create the background and then debossed the paper.
I used wet glue to create the layered flowers. Each flower had a small die cut key in the center of each piece as a guide to create each flower. I used foam tape to adhere the flowers to add dimension and tucked the leaves behind the flowers. The background piece was inked using a light shade of green ink, debossed and a rounded corner die on a half sheet of white cardstock. A finishing touch, I sprayed the card front using Avery Elle clear shimmery spray. The shine is a great accent for the layered pieces. flowers.
