Don't Worry, Be Happy! IO challenge

Okay, this is my first time putting one of my cards in a challenge. Click here for the IO challenge blog. I'm hoping I followed all of the guidelines! Thank you to Karen Amidon for encouraging me to do this :) Here are the materials I used:

  • Don't Worry stamp (H1867) by Impression Obsession
  • More Basic Greetings stamp set (CL549) by Impression Obsession
  • copic markers- N2, N7, V12, V15, Y17, Y19, BG13, BG15, G14, G24, G43, E25, E27, YR14, YR15, YR31, YG25, E33
  • copic airbrushing (YR31)
  • wonky rectangles by spellbinders
  • paper- The Green Stack paper pack
  • memento ink- tuxedo black and rich cocoa
  • yellow polka dot ribbon
Crossing my fingers for my first challenge entry!


  1. Very fun card! Love the colors and I love your style (I've been snooping around your blog). Good luck with your first IO challenge. I won my first challenge at IO (haven't won IO since) but it's been almost a year and I keep trying. Hope beginners luck is with you too. :)

  2. YAY! This is beautiful Leigh and perfect for the challenge. "Don't Worry, Be Happy", reassures me that the "winter chill" is only temporary and that spring, warmth and new beginnings will be here soon! Wonderful coloring and love the airbrushing. I'm so glad that you have entered your very first challenge and that it is with Impression Obsession! Good Luck!

  3. I'm a proud Copic Mama! Look at you airbrushing and your coloring is outstanding! I'm so glad you played along with IO and look forward to seeing MORE!!! I've never colored this image so maybe I'll borrow your bright and happy color scheme... I love it, Leigh!

  4. Such a fun card! The colors are yummy!

  5. Fantastic coloring and such pretty colors!! The yellow polka dotted ribbon is the perfect finishing touch!! So glad you entered this beauty!! You have inspired me to dust off my Copic ABS!!

  6. Leigh, congratulations in participating in your first IO challenge. Welcome! I adore your yellow polka dot ribbon and your coloring is wonderful. I really admire anyone who can color well with Copics as I am totally pitiful with them. Please keep playing in the challenges. It is so fun for us to see all the challenge entries.

  7. What a wonderful card to keep off the winter chill! Love that you did the inside, too. Thanks for joining us for the IO challenge! Hope you continue to play along! :)
