I Dare You to Resist the challenge at Our Creative Corner

Evening All
Now as you know I am a great fan of the wonderful challenges run by the Girls at Our Creative Corner.
They are always that little bit different, and they have a twist in the challenge as well.
This week the challenge is I Dare You to Resist Resisting, and here are the FOUR requirements...

1.) Resist Stamping (examples: Versamark, Embossing powder, gel, crayon)
2.)  Describe the technique you used somewhere on your post.
3.) Also, include Wings (Anything with wings or wings by themselves)
4.) This can be a card OR a project (all are welcome!)
This is the card that I made, which I hope will fulfil all requirements, but you can imagine my surprise when I went to add the links to my post to find that I won last week with my Recycled Gift.
I am honoured Guys, thank you soooo much. I will display my badge with pride.
Anyway to get back to my card for this latest challenge.
The main panel has been created by stamping Woodware Alphabet Background onto white cardstock using Denim Adirondack ink and then making sure that it is dry  before stamping and embossing Woodware JGS274 Ferns over the top using Versamark and clear embossing powder.
The next step is to sponge the entire thing with Denim, Lettuce and Meadow inks. This makes the white stamped image 'POP' through the ink and the Alphabet shows through as well.
I also spritzed the uninked stamp with water and stamped this onto the panel as well to give a ghosted image in the background.
I trimmed the panel and having tapped around the edge with the Denim ink pad I then coated it with clear embossing powder which gives a lovely embossed finish to the edges.
Just for You is from a Hobby Art clear stamp set.
I sponged and stamped the main card using the same inks and 'Ghost' stamping and added two die cut butterflies which I also sponged and heat embossed.
Of course no card of mine would be complete without a stitched border and some Card Candi.
Don't forget to pop over and see what the DT have come up with, there are some fabulous creations as always.
Better go now I have a pair of trousers to turn up for my Grandson before he can wear them to school tomorrow.
