For my creation I used the new Anchor stamp set sentiment just release this week and the dies and punches challenge, ODBDSLC26 .  I just find the verses and sentiments so comforting in the Anchor set. The dp is some new K&Co paper, Julianne, I received from Michaels. You can't see all the sparkle and embossing in the photo on this dp.  It is gorgeous!! I added some lace and a flower for a more vintage flair as well as some distressing.
