Another Mother Teresa Quote

I love my new ODBD stamp set--Let Us Begin. This is the second quote I've used--1 more to go. This week's challenge is to be inspired by one of 2 photos & I chose this one with it's beautiful, elegant look in ivory & lavender.  
I stamped the Sweet William blossoms in Distress Ink shaded lilac, sponged ink in the centers & then over-stamped.  I used Dawn's debossing technique with the matching Spellbinder Blossoms 3.  The scalloped edge is also a Spellbinder die.  The sentiment is stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.  Tied on some ribbon & added ivory pearls.  Hope you like it.  I'll add this to SSS Wednesday: Anything Goes & Inkspirational: Bloom. Thanks for taking time to come by.

    This is a most gorgeous card you have made, not just the design but also the palette in the brilliant Blue, which is so attractive to the eye.

  18. What a stunning card design! The sentiment really stands out this way and your flowers are beautiful. Do I see right from your sidebar photos that you used to have a schnauzer? We are getting a male schnauzer puppy in the end of June! I'm so excited about it. :) Anyways, thanks for joining us at Inkspirational!
