Hello friends!
The Impression Obsession Design Team have set aside a couple days a month to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Today, I have a fun s'mores card!
I know many of you love camping and this card is perfect for that occasion!

I got inspired by this picture from the current Art Nudge

I took a blender sponge and use whatever leftover blue color was on it, I applied it on very slow motion to create a soft background.
