Mother Teresa Inspiration

MMSC #16

I enjoyed thinking about this challenge before even starting my card. I new I wanted to use the ODBD stamps but not sure how. I chose the Mother Teresa sayings and really liked the end product. As you will notice on all my cards there are butterflies. I LOVE butterflies of all sorts. My base card is from DCWV gray textured and then I used Heidi Grace design paper to give it a fallish setting. With that the leaf shapeabilities came to mind and everything else just flowed together. Prima flowers and fern leaves were highlighted with stickles as well as accents on baby butterflies :-) The Ruban ribbon compliments all the colors used.

The finished inside of my card:


Stamps: ODBD Mother Teresa Set, Inkadinkado "God Loves You"
: Brillance Cosmic Copper
: DCWV, Heidi Grace Designs, and SU

: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Leaf Collection & Nesties, Sizzix swirls, Cuttlebug Friends Forever cutting die, MS butterfly and border punches, EK Success fern punch
Embellishments: Prima flowers, Stickles, Ruban ribbon, and rhinestones
