Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Favorite Poem or Quote

Impression Obsession has some great quote and sentiment stamps - the Design Team is showing some of them off today! Here's my card: The quote stamp is called "Change the World" - one of my favorite quotes, and I love how the text art highlights those specific words. I stamped the Roses first, then used a stamp positioner to snug the sentiment in between the leaves. To cut out the label, I referred to this tutorial.
The roses are stamped in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Dark Brown ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils - I stamped the image a second time and colored just the center of the rose, which I cut out, shaped, and glued in place. On the background panel, I stamped the Rose Cover-a-Card in Dark Brown and highlighted with a Beige pencil. The edges are scored, sanded, and lightly brushed with a gold ink pad.

Prismacolor pencils that I used:Remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps!
