Impression Obsession Friendship card challenge

It's time for another Impression Obsession Challenge. The challenge this week is to create a Friendship card, then mail it to your best friend. Well, once I start thinking about a best friend, a lot of memories come to mind, from childhood especially, those seem the sweetest memories. So this nostalgic card is what I came up with. 

I've used a lot of stamps for this card, the main image, and the background papers are all stamped. For the Melon colored DP I used this Triple Stripe stamp to create a plaid pattern. The leaf patterned paper was stamped with one of my favorite Cover a Card stamps, Greenery, in Soft Sky ink. 

The bicycle is from the Riding Pretty clear stamp set, which I colored with some Copics. I've aged all the papers slightly with a bit of Distress Ink, Antique Linen. I love the soft vintage look it gives to my projects.

You can play along in our challenge too, and win some IO bucks for the Impression Obsession store! Read all the details on the IO blog. Then you can check out all the other friendship cards created by our design team ladies for more inspiration!
