October Humble Artist's Swap

Our Humble Artist's Swap this past October was (once again!) a doozy... here were the requirements:
Here are the guidelines:
-Use at least 1 newink colour
-Use at least 2 newribbons
-Use at least 3 newpatterned papers
-Use at least 4 newcardstock
-Use at least 5 embellishments (including 2 new ribbons)
-Use at least 6 stamped images
-Use at least a 7 word sentiment
-Use at least 8 layers
I chose to use the Avonlea papers along with the Avonlea Card Workshop on the Go.  The hardest requirements for me were fitting in the 6 stamped images (one border stamp, 4 on the slate background mat, and one medallion stamped on the green patterned paper!) and trying to get a 4th colour of new cardstock in there.  I ended up adding a tiny little heart in Avonlea green to the sentiment as my 4th colour (you don't see it in the main image, just in my close up shot after I added it).  Here's what I came up with:
 Patterned papers are Avonlea; Cardstock is Slate, Avonlea teal, Avonlea Green and Avonlea Off-White; Ink is Slate; Burlap, Hemp, Rosette ribbon, Avonlea ribbon, Avonlea bubbles - all CTMH.
