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!
