High Hopes Challenge #8


Hi everyone;
What a way to start a Monday morning....its snowing like mad here!! Huge snowflakes coming down, I guess my card will fit right in. This is my card for the HHC this week. The theme was buttons and brads.
I stamped the black card with HO and white versa color. I embossed the image and the holly with black and painted it with Tombows. I used liquid applique for the cuffs and trim and used flocking on santa's hair and beard. I used my new cb folder edges for the edge with the brads. I also added some stickles.
Hope you like it
Have a great day!
Karen
