MIM adding texture to flat cards

Edited:  What a wonderful surprise to wake up to on Monday morning; I won the MIM challenge I made this last batch of cards for.  This card was the randomly selected number for the week.  Wow!  I can't believe it!  Thanks to everyone at PTI for their fabulous challenges and creativity.   Can't wait to try out this week's new challenge using handmade confetti from dies.  Cool!  I think there are some graduation cards that I can use this technique for.

Here is my next entry into this week's Make It Monday challenge.  I stretched the rules just a bit, but I think it still counts as it is very flat, mailable, and yet includes lots of the textural tips that Erin shared in the credits of her tutorial video:  inlaid die cuts, using embossing plates, and stamping.
I also used some flat sequins for some added texture and bling with no bulk.  So this isn't really a one layer card, but it packs a lot of textural punch and won't need to be handled with care in the mail.

I used Scattered Showers 2 rain drop background with Illuminate Versamark ink,  the polka dot basics  embossing plate (some clouds the embossing is raised, some it is depressed), clouds dies, We Go Together stamps, and spring rain printed paper in bitty dots and gingham.
