Little Claire challenge and blog hop

This is my DT card for this month's Challenge on Little Claire's blog. The challenges starts today. The theme is an 'Open Theme' and there's a blog hop too!
For my card I used two stamps from Little Claire, Geranium and Pom Pom Dahlia. I used the stamps for both the main image, on the first and third panel, and also a stamped pattern on the second and forth panel. The white Tag card blank I used is also from Little Claire.
The two main images were stamped with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad and then coloured with ProMarkers. I stamped and coloured the images twice and then cut section from the second image and attached them to the first with foam pads. I added gold Dimension Pearls and Stickles to flower heads. I used black Peel-Offs for the sentiments.  
This month, Little Claire are offering two prizes, which doubles your changes of winning some lovely Little Claire goodies!

Your card is so creative!! Love how you used the stamps for the background and then popped them up on separate panels.
