Challenge time!





This Impression Obsession challenge is all about friendship, so I thought I'd use a color combo that I normally wouldn't to celebrate my friends. Must admit that I sort of like the way it turned out!

Using rose red, butter yellow and celery green on a chocolate brown background, I stamped everything in the same chocolate brown, paper pieced the center red flower, added some sparkle with a stardust pen and then finished it off with clear jewels. Simple and easy!

Be sure to check out the IO team blogs for more fun friendship cards:



I'd also like to thank Michelle Giraud for joining us for the past 3 months as our guest designer. She has added tremendous creativity and inspiration with her cards and I'm so glad she was part of our team!

Sending a big welcome to Shirley Ross, who is our new IO blog host. She's already posting lots of fun cards and awesome tutorials and we're glad to have her with us!

I laughed kind of hard when I read, "these aren't colors I normally use" in your card description because when I clicked on your blog, I said, "Oh, those are colors Kelli doesn't normally pick!" So... then I cracked up when I read your post! You're a bright and springy stamper! I do like what you did though -- love all the sparkle and bling!

Love the colors and layout. It really came together well. Plus, it can't hurt to have bling on a card!

Wow, Kelli, I love those back panels and your main image is beautiful too! I like your words and the Stardream paper you chose to stamp on. It really is great with you center flower. I need to challenge myself more so I can come up with designs like this. Thanks for the warm words of welcome too!
