An Easy Peasy IO Creation

Hi all and Happy Thursday! This week has FLOWN by for me. How's about you? It's starting to get a little nice in my neck of the woods, so I have to say, I haven't been in my stamp room all that much lately. I do have a "quickie" card to show you though - super duper easy because of three stamps!

Wanna see?

So.... to make this quick card, I stamped one of Impression Obsessions Cover-A-Cards  (Damask) using red ink. Over top, I stamped THIS super larger rose called Large Romantic Rose and colored it up with Copic markers in shades of light red - R24, R14, and R27 and in the greens I used the Copic numbers YG00 and YG03. Mat it up, edge it with a gold leaf pen and the rest is just adding some pizazz! I have one of IO's lovely sentiments called Beauty of a Garden that I stamped on gold leaf edged ivory cardstock and I added some gold self stick pearls. After that, I added some 1/2" black seam binding ribbon (tied with the help of a Bow-E-Z) and matted it all up on a black card that I had also edged with some gold leaf pen. This is one of those cards that could go out the door for any occassion. I like to keep some of these on hand for thank yous, thinking of yous or even "I owe you lunch" creations to drop  in the mail!

And that, my friends, is it! A quick post for a quick card! Hope life is nothing but joyful in your neck of the woods. I'll see you back here tomorrow for a fun holiday inspired challenge -- yes, you heard me right -- a holiday inspired challenge - stay tuned!
