Now on to my creation for this challenge:

For my creation, I used the stamps  Faith and Anchor from Our Daily Bread Designs. The ingredients I used from the challenge included: H- hemp, E-dry and wet embossing, A- anything ODBD, R- ribbon and lace, T-tearing or distressing. The dp I used is from K&Co. Julianne (96 sheet pack).  The lace my dear daughter bought me for Christmas.  The flower is created by tearing and reforming several prima flowers. The sentiment is embossed and stamped over the butterflies from the Faith set.  To create the hemp flourishes, I stiffened the hemp with glue and curled them, stiffening them by a hot iron.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
