Love Makes The World A Better Place Verve Stamps Challenge Card

My email contained a lovely surprise a few days ago, in the form of a page of free digital stamps from Verve Stamps.  I am using them to make cards for the Verve Diva Inspirations Challenge 
which is to use the digital stamps from the sheet on a card or project.
This is the page of images.....
My thanks to Verve Stamps for this freebee!  I love it.

Here is my first card....
I do not often use digital stamps, but I must say, I really had a great time with these.
For my card, I printed the image sheet onto craft card stock, then colored and cut them out and placed them on my card.  For the main image,' Love makes the world a better place,' I placed a circle stencil over it, then sponged white ColorBox ink over the image. I had to go over the letters with a black Pigma pen to get them dark again.  Then I used a circle die cut slightly larger to cut it out.  I colored all of the images with distress markers.  The panel with the tiny hearts was stamped with ColorBox white pigment ink using a tiny heart stamp from my stash.  All others are from the sheet of digis.
I added a piece of twine ribbon, and some string along the left side for interest.

I layered the elements on my card to fit the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, so I could enter it there.
I am also adding my card to these challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown - Heart Strings (use hearts and string, ribbon, or twine)

House of Cards Challenge  - Love theme and/or colors

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge - Love

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with an entirely different take with this digi sheet.  Tomorrow it will be pink!
