IO Challenge... Seeing RED!

Hi all and Happy Thursday! I have another IO Challenge to share and this one could have you seeing red!! This time, it's a color challenge and all you need to do is #1 use at least one Impression Obsession stamp and #2 showcase the color red! You can read up on the challenge HERE. We hope you play -- you could have your card featured on the IO Blog AND you just might win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!

So... here goes! I wanted to make a birthday card to have in my stash and I used one of the brand new stamps just released by IO for its summer release! You can check it out all the new stamps HERE. Lots of fun stuff!

I used the new Everything's Rose Cupcake from Alesa Baker and colored it up with Copics I used E25,E27, E37, B00, R24, R27, R27, and then G40, G82 and G85 for the greens. From there, I stamped the sentiment - A Bit Sweeter - on a notched out strip of white card stock. The rest is really simple -- add some dp, a scalloped square (Nestabilities die), some stitching and a little bling and... done!

Here's a close up. You can see I had to add a little bit of pizazz with glitter! ;-)
So, if you are a fan of the color red, hope you make time to play! If you need a little extra inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the IO DT and see what they cooked up!


Thanks for stopping by! See you back here soon! :-)
