IO Challenge- Anything Goes

Today the Impression Obsession challenge was "anything goes." We were free to make anything we wanted. I wanted to take a break from holiday-themed cards and go for a giraffe card.  IO makes a fantastic giraffe patterned Cover a Card, but I decided to make a patterned paper out of the Ticking (CC126) and Large Dots (CC007) Cover a Card designs.  On a side note, if you change the colors to blue or pink, the two Cover a Cards make a fun background for baby cards.

To finish the card, I colored the Giraffe (G7697) with watercolor pencils and added a button and twine.

Be sure to visit the other designers' blogs.  With a theme like "anything goes," you never know what you will find! Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, Kittie, and Vicki created. Want to play along? You can find all the information here, and you could even win a $25 IO gift certificate!

Don't forget that you can find Impression Obsession on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook!
