The Color Purple... an Impression Obsession Challenge!

I don't know about you... but the color purple is one of my favorites and this week, the gals at Impression Obsession are challenging YOU to use it! There is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs if you use Impression Obsession images and play along!

On to my creation.... I wanted to use one of the brand new Cover-A-Card backgrounds as my focus because I just think it is beautiful all on its own!

This Damask Cover-A-Card background is one of the new stamps that will be released at Winter CHA in just a few weeks. I am not sure if you've ever seen the Cover-A-Card stamps but they measure 5-3/4" square which --just like the name says -- covers the card! Use it with the rocking Mega Mount and, you get a fabulous impression every time with a large stamp. I love that! I paired the stamp up with Silhouette 2 and just a portion of THIS sentiment called Live Every Moment. Cut the sentiment with a Spellbinders tag, sponge on some ink (Violet Mist Vivid!), add some black ribbon and mat it all up on some purple decorative paper and black cardstock and.. almost done! I did a little paper piercing, added a silver leaf edging and of course, put a dash of bling too! Voila!

You'll have to hop on over and see what the rest of the IO gals whipped up using the color purple!
