How Much Love We Put In

After a crazy week at school, I finally had time to do some stamping today!  It was a great stress reliever for me.  I started with the Midnight Madness Sketch 90.  Then I added ODBD's Shining the Light Challenge 48 which is "Have a H.E.A.R.T. recipe challenge" (hemp, embossing, any ODBD stamps, ribbon/lace, and tearing or distressing).  We were to use at least three of the ingredients.  I also used ODBD's Stamping in Time Challenge 28 which is distressing. 

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card.

I used some hemp in the corners of the sketch, but it is nearly all covered up by the mini roses.  The other elements in my recipe were distressing (torn edge and sponged), ribbon, and a sentiment from ODBD's "Mother Teresa" set.

Here's a closer look at the panel.

Stamps:  ODBD "Mother Teresa"
Paper:  white, green, dp from K & Co.
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Other:  Mini roses from Recollections, sewing machine, Tim Holtz distress tool, pearls, hemp string, satin ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by!
