It's That Time Again - IO Challenge Thursday

Today the challenge is to create a Fall card. My card uses IO Fall Squares - CL138 and Cover-a-Card™ Tapestry - CC024. All of the new products and stamps can be viewed RED RUBBER STAMPS HERE AND CLEAR STAMP SETS HERE.

My card is not very colorful here, but IRL it shines and the contrast of Deep Brown and White is kind of elegant. I stamped the background with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate. It is the new 5.75X5.75 Cover A Card stamp. \
Talk about having enough to do extra things. That is what I used for the center. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Spellbinder Frameabilities Small Classic frame. I embossed it afterward, and that is where I applied the Stickles Cinnamon to give it some glitz, which you can't see. :-( The quote is also stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.
The ribbon is White Grosgrain I bought somewhere years ago. The button has the same history. I used 3 and 5MM pearls for the accented corners.
Would you like to see your card featured on the Impression Obsession blog? Email your challenge cards using IO images to me . Every week cards sent are showcased on the IO blog and then posted in the IO Photo Album there with your name!!! If you want to take part in the challenge you have until Saturday midnight to email me your card. It must be created with IO stamps. For those of you who participate, thanks for joining in the fun!!
Now, in addition, don't forget to check out the other DT members to see what new stamps, etc. they are using on their always gorgeous cards. Below are their links. Also, I have updated their albums to include the newest stamps too.

So that's it for today. I have tons on cards in the make. I just need to get down to business. Thanks for stopping by the blog to look and share and it's great to be back.
