You're Wonderful

Today I'm posting a card for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #251 (PPA251). This is my first PPA challenge.
A piece of Irresistibly Yours embossing cardstock was sponged with Daffodil Delight then using the emboss resist technique, the excess ink was wiped off to reveal the dotted design. The edges were sponged with Melon Mambo. A piece of Melon Mambo cardstock was adhered, then a piece of turquoise stripe. The ribbon was added and then the entire pieced layer was adhered to the card base.
The image was stamped on white cardstock with Stazon ink and colored with markers. Additional flowers were stamped in Melon Mambo. The image piece was layered on a piece of Irresistibly Yours embossing cardstock cut from the piece adhered to the card base. This was adhered to Melon Mambo cardstock and backed with craft foam to pop up the image on the card. Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and leaves.
The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of the turquoise striped paper. Stop by PPA to join in the challenge fun!
