Today's card is for a couple of challenges! It is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge(FS162)! Gorgeous gallery, Kristen. Here is the card I chose to case.

This card is also for ODBD Second Anniversary Challenges (ODBD2AC2)! This is day two of the challenges and there is an inspiration picture. This is where I derived my colors and paper choices.
Kristen focused on the dp, a sentiment, and a few pearls for her card. I did the same for mine. I am using ODBD stamp set called Let Us Begin. I used one of the quotes by Mother Teresa that come in the set. I stamped it directly to my Webster's Pages dp. Every once and awhile a dp comes along that is so gorgeous there is NOTHING else that needs to be done with it. I added a few punched butterflies. Two came from the trimmings of the Webster's Pages. One came from BasicGrey Origins. I finished with my fou fou bow, button, gold cording, and a few gold pearls. 

ODBD Let Us Begin
Ivory, PTI ripe avocado, berry sorbet, Webster's Pages

Gold Pearls, MS buttefly punch, gold bowdabra wire, button, mini bowdabra, glue dots
