A challenge to DIE for!

Hi all! Hope you had a fabulous Fourth of July holiday! Today, the gals over at Impression Obsession are ushering in a challenge to DIE for! That's right -- it's a challenge where you have to use one die on your creation! You can read up about all the official rules HERE -- if you play along, you'll be in the running for a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!

On to my creation!
I got this idea in my head that I wanted to do a completely monochromatic card with the die cuts taking center stage. I will admit, this is not exactly what I had in mind but - it was fast and easy and will be put in the basket for those "gotta have a card" occasions! After embossing a card front with an embossing folder, I die cut THIS die called Butterflies and then popped up both on the card front. Add some ribbon, pearls and a saying - Thinking of You Days and... ta da!

So... you'll have to check out what the rest of the IO team did using some of IO Stamps new dies! You can click HERE to see all of them in the IO store.

Play along in the challenge too! You have until next Thursday (July 11th) to enter! Not only do you have a chance to win, entries are posted in the Customer Card Gallery over on the IO Blog!

Thanks for stopping by everyone - hope you have a fabulous weekend ahead!

How come your ribbon is so darn PERFECT? I'm totally wilted! Lovely card, lovely friend. Happy Weekend (almost!)

I really love this monochromatic card, Julie! It shows that you don't always have to have 3--the 2 butterflies are perfect. I will remember that next time I'm trying to decide what to do.
