HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #17

Good morning everyone:
A great start to a new week....the sun is actually shinning here! We are in a bit of a thaw, so we can see some grass poking out. It will take forever to get rid of the snowbanks though, but I am sooooo happy to see the sun. I know you must be thinking..."it doesn't take much to please this one!!" LOL Anyway I hope you all have a great Monday.

This is my card for the HHC #17. The challenge this week is a sketch by Katharina, and a fabulous sketch it is.

I embossed this adorable image with black and painted it with Tombows. I also added quite a bit of stickles to this one. I wanted some blue in the ribbon...so I stickled it too. Nothing is safe from me and my stickles...lol! The DP is from DCWV stack. I used my CB folder swiss dots for the blue bazzill piece. The little flowers are punched from my MS hydrangea punch. A few dew drops on the corners and ..voila!

Hope you like it and have a great day.
Thanks for stopping by.....
