I was able to combine five challenges on this card.  For the Basic Grey "Hearts" challenge, I used dp from the "Bittersweet" collection.  I combined ODBD's Stamping in Time challenge, "All About Love" with the Shining the Light challenge, "Choose Your Challenge."  For the choose your challenge, I picked punches and/or dies (MS punch and Nesties).  I used the CR84FN14 color combo of light pink, bright pink, and chocolate brown.

My layout is from the February Sketch for You to Try.

Here's my card.

The Mother Teresa quote is from ODBD's "Let Us Begin."  I added some pearl flourishes, roses, and silk ribbon.  Here's a look from the side.

Lastly, here's the back of the card with my personalized stamp.

Here's what I used:
Stamps:  ODBD "Let Us Begin"
Papers:  white, brown, and dp from Basic Grey "Bittersweet"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, SU! Melon Mambo sponged on punched heart border
Other:  Prima and Recollections roses, Nesties, Recollections pearls, Zva Creative pearl flourishes, MS heart doily lace punch, sponge, May Arts pink silk ribbon, Bow Easy

Thanks for stopping by!
