Thought you could use a lift

As a new member of the Dutch Dare DT, here's my first inspiration card for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge DDCC #145 - Use your favorite things - sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. It was great fun, as I have many, many favorite things I use when making cards, and this card features the colors green and yellow, Copics, Sakura stardust pen, Spellbinders dies, embossing folders, ribbon, flowers and bling! I used the adorable "Sweet Angel" digi image from The Stamping Boutique for my focal image! I used the direct ink-to-paper sponging technique on the embossed background, which was kind of neat!

Recipe:
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; yellow textured cardstock; dark green corrugated cardstock; gold mirror cardstock
  • Green polka dot paper from the Echo Park Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pack
  • Sweet Angel digital image from The Stamping Boutique
  • Copics: E00, E35, E37, YG11, YG13, YG17, G09, RV23, Y02, Y06, B02
  • Sakura stardust and white glaze pens
  • Spellbinders scalloped rectangles, ovals and lacey ovals dies
  • Tim Holtz swirls embossing folder
  • Sentiment from Taylored Expressions In The Park stamp set
  • Memento tuxedo black ink; stem green ink
  • Green polka dot ribbon; yellow paper rose
  • Medium green and tiny clear gemstones
