High Hopes Challenge #12 and an Award

Good morning everyone;
I hope you all had a great weekend so far. We are expecting some bad weather today...freezing rain...yuck!! I hope the forcasters will be wrong again...cause I was hoping spring was on its way!! My card today has the feeling of spring..so that will just have to do for now.



This is my card for the HHC #12. Torn edge is the challenge.
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I also added some stickles. I sponged the background with different inks and embossed it with clear powder. I was trying to do the backround like Theresa does hers...but as you can see I need a ton more practice...lol. Theresa is the queen of backgrounds. I tore the edges of the sentiment with my fancy ruler and punched the flower for the corner.

Hope you like it
Thanks for stopping by....
Have a great day!
KAREN
