IO Challenge- Encouragement

Hi all. For some reason, Blogger isn't letting me add breaks, so this post is going to be one really long paragraph! Today I am posting a card for the Impression Obsession Challenge. This time the theme is encouragement....inspiration, thinking of you, graduation, or any other card to show someone you care. With graduation season approaching, I thought I would tackle that theme. To make the card, I used the following stamps: Congratulations B5505 Book-Cap G2335 Cover a Card Medallion CC032 I colored the book and cap with Copic Markers and edged everything with some Venetian Sunrise Fresco Chalk ink. Need ideas for encouragement cards? Check out what Need some purple inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Deborah, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, Kathy, and Shirley created. "Encouragement" is open for wide interpretation, so there should be some vastly different samples. Want to play along? You can find all of the information here, and you could even win a $25 Impression Obsession gift certificate!
