IO Sweet Thoughts Challenge

This weeks challenge at Impression Obsession is called Sweet Thoughts. Besides the challenges being fun you can win $25 if your name is drawn. Here's my card:


To make this card I used these IO stamps: Coffee Mug #B4307, Sm. Emb. Butterfly C8259 and Thinking of You #C1143.
I started my card using a folder I colored with pink and put through my Big Shot embossing machine. I trimmed and then mounted this card to a larger Teal card and then a larger Pink card. They were all layered to a folded White card. I put a strip of light Pink cardstock across the center which has three brads inserted and a stick-on button to the left. I stamped Thinking of you on a narrower and darker Pink strip using Black dye ink and layered this on top of the lighter Pink strip. I stamped eight Coffee Mugs onto white cardstock using Black dye ink and cut out all. Five of the Coffee Mugs have a punched out Teal heart and the letters "SWEET" on them. They are all mounted in a row at the bottom of the card. The other three mugs are mounted at the top. I stamped two Butterflies, cut out and also mounted them as shown. A Pink paper flower was also added to the card.
