Hi all! I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Dutch Dare Card challenge #155 was a recipe. I found it pretty tough. Here's the recipe and how I complied with it:
1 stamped or digi image- I used a free rose digital image
1 sentiment- sentiment by Verve
2 ribbon- I used two sheer ribbons and sponged one of them with ink
3 pattern papers- the heart is from a sheet of patterned paper, the music sheet background is a digital paper and the rose-colored floral patterned is my third paper
4 embellishments (can be 4 of the same or 4 different ones) I used 4 pink adhesive pearls

Prairie Fairy Fridays challenge #74 was to do distressing. I distressed the fairy image tag with Antique Linen ink and also used a paper distressing tool to tear the edge of the music sheet paper. 

Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge #58 was to use fairies. 

Charisma Cardz challenge #9 was to use ribbon. I used two different ribbons for this card which is my second entry for this challenge. 

Here's my card:

The time came to use the vintage sheet of patterned paper I was using as a backdrop for some of my photos. I cut out the heart on it to use it for my card. The digital image was colored with the Antique Linen and Spun Sugar distress inks. Sponged some ink on the white die-cut to soften down the bright white. 

supplies used:
stamps: free rose image by Free Vintage Digi Stamps; Verve- heartfelt phrases
ink: Memento in Rich Cocoa; Tim Holtz in Antique Linen and Spun Sugar
card stock: Papertrey Ink in Kraft
patterned paper: Daisy D's love letters; music sheet paper from; unknown rose-colored floral patterned paper from scrap pile
accessories: the fairy tag and the butterfly are elements from digital kits from the Far Far Hill blog. I added color to the butterfly with the Tim Holtz distress inks to give it a vintage look. Also used Glimmer Mist in dazzling diamonds and Rangers glossy accents on it. The ribbons were both translucent, but I sponged Tim Holtz Antique Linen to the striped one. Also used Dainty Dots Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and Gem Chic adhesive pearls. 

Thanks for looking!
