Hey there! Hi! Hello!

If you can't tell by the title, giving a little hey there or hello is the topic for one of this month's challenges for Impression Obsession! The fun starts now and runs through next Wednesday, February 22nd! Play along and you could win $25 in the Impression Obsession store! Want to find out how to play -- just visit the IO Blog! 

On to my creation!

One of the new stamp sets just released at CHA features this little lady named "Sarah!" I just love the fact that you have one main image in this clear set plus a handful of different sentiments you can use as well! You can click HERE to see for yourself! I know my card doesn't really say.. "Hello!" but come on -- this little gal is on a bike and she's ready to come for a happy little visit! :-) I think it works! 

Card tidbits: I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored my scene up with Copic markers. I used these colors - BG11, BG000, BG0000, R27, YG00, YG03, YG06, YR07, YR09, E33, E37, RV32, RV34, C00, C03 and C05.  

After I colored her up, I did add some paper piercing and some glitter on the wings of the little butterflies and on the little flowers. See? 

And I added the sentiment on a punched circle and then matted it on a Spellbinders Blossom die, added a little twine, some decorative paper from my stash, a little blue ribbon band and... voila!
