Stamped Birthday Card with Colored Pencils - Impression Obsession Challenge

Phew, what a whirlwind week! It's been a nonstop crafty party here on the blog this week. If you've missed it, be sure to scroll back because there are chances for a giveaway, and new product and fun projects - and I don't want you to miss a THING! 

Today there's a new challenge up on the Impression Obsession blog (along with another chance to WIN!) The theme is Birthday Wishes, so I got busy playing with another new-to-me stamp set from IO for today's project.

 I had so much fun coloring this card! I stamped out a bunch of images from this set, with NO direction or plan. I sat and colored and then fussy cut everything, and then just put together a little celebration scene.
 First, I used a sponge dauber and inked some Cool Pool ink onto the center of a panel of white cardstock. Then I assembled my scene together, using lots of foam squares for extra dimension. I attached the twine along the top, and then just popped the banner pieces on with foam squares. To finish it off, I added a sentiment, some glitter glue, and a few rhinestones.
I'm so glad you came by today - and now I hope you'll head over to the Impression Obsession blog. You'll find links to the other designers' projects, as well as the challenge rules, and a place to link up YOUR challenge card. A lucky winner who participates will receive a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!
