The Word Unto Thee

Hello Crafters,
Today I spent a nice chunk of time in my craft room (about 4 hours) to complete a few challenge cards. Today I am participating in As You See It Challenge #87, Color Throwdown #343, and Word Art Wednesday CHallenge #184. Word Art Wednesday's Challenge provided this great sentiment from Deuteronomy 30:14, which says "But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it." This sentiment will make a nice card for both my grandparents in-law. Here is the card I made with these challenges in mind. 

To make the card I used Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. I used the SU Honeycomb Embossing folder stamped with temping turquoise and the brayer to transfer the pattern to the card stock, and kept rolling it over and over to make my own DSP. 
I then layered on the greeting from Word Art Wednesday and a Daffodil CS banner.
The ribbon is not SU, and the burlap is naturally crumb cake coloured but I dyed it with Early Espresso re-inker and rubbing alcohol.
The heart speach bubble is from an old Paper Pumpkin kit. I stamped it in Burmuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay CS and then coloured in the heart with  a white gel pen. I added some last details with mini pearls I coloured yellow and brown markers.

Here are close-ups on the card's details.

Here are the sketch, inspiration, and colors for this card:
