The Sweet Stop 90 & Play Date Cafe

This card is for The Play Date Cafe Challenge and The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #90.  
Supplies: Card Blank: Handy Hippo; Paper: Black Ink green, gold vellum, silver cardstock; Stamps: Hero Arts background stamp & Pop Stems stamp; Ink: Archival Brilliance Platinum Planet, VersaMark; Other: Ranger clear embossing powder, Nestabilities Labels Seventeen, Basic Grey gems, Magic Mesh, dragonfly brad
As usual, not a great pic but you can see the embossed design on the gold background in this shot so I'm going with it.  I wanted to take some pictures outside today but aside from it being another gloomy afternoon it was wild and windy!  Didn't need my cards making like kites and flying away.  :)  I wasn't sure about a sentiment on this card.  I had originally thought I'd put something in the bottom right corner but I didn't really leave myself enough space and I wasn't sure where else to put one.  Thoughts?

The silver ink on the green is soooo pretty! I struggle with where to put sentiments sometimes too but I've found that inside the card works just fine too ;)

I like this image and how you've stamped it directly onto the paper! Lovely.

Jen, this is beautiful! You did wonderfully with those colours. I love the silver on the green rice paper and the mesh and dragonfly embellishments are wonderful!
