CHA DT Blog Hop Week - Day 1

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on each designer's posts throughout the week for a chance to win a gift certificate from Impression Obsession!
I went with a simple layout for this card, to showcase 3 new stamps - a greeting (C8703), a background (CR008), and a new floral design (Poppy Love 2) from Alesa Baker. You know I love poppies, and this is a lovely long-stemmed image. The top of my card is embossed with a Sizzix texture plate. I used a scalloped die to finish the bottom of my card, and a row of pearls made with my new Viva pearl pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Interesting layout with word and picture placed at the bottom of the card. At first I wondered what occasion "Blessings" would be used for, but as I think about it - it would make a nice card for many reasons.
