Focus on a Phrase....

Hi all! It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge and this one -- is all about quotes and phrases. Kelli challenged us to make your favorite quote a focal point on your card. So... here goes!
I wanted my card to be clean and simple. I did, however, use a handful of stamps! I used the Cover a Card Distressed Courdoroy on the Background and stamped it vertically and then horizontally using Versamark watermark ink. I love the cross hatch look it created! After that, I decided to accent a corner using some of IO's silhouette stamps. I love these for the graphic impact that they have. I used Silhouette 7 and Silhouette 12 and stamped it in a medium brown (Vivid Taupe) and black (Vivid Black). Next came the sentiment! It's called Love Life and I just stamped it using black ink. Add a punched border, a button and string and... just that simple!

Want to see what the other IO gals did to put a sentiment center stage? Just click on over and see....
