Lift Me Up - Version II

I was inspired to take Dawn Griffith's YouTube video and create this card. View Dawn's video HERE and please be sure to leave her a comment for taking the time to create this video! I tweaked the card; my measurements ARE NOT THE same as Dawn's.

This is the card I posted on June 6. I omitted a layer of cardstock.
