HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #26

Happy Easter Sunday to you all!! I hope you are all having a fabulous Easter weekend.
We are having some beautiful weather, still a little nippy, but the sun is gorgeous.

High Hopes challlenge #26 is brought to you this week by HH's amazingly talented #1 artist....Crissy. The challenge she has chosen is "Pierce it". Now you can pierce it any way you like, just make sure you have holes in it....LOL!!

I have chosen this adorable image "Summers Sweetness" and "Thanks a Melon" for my card.



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I dabbed dots of color onto the sentiment and washed it with water to make the marble effect. The little roses in the corners were stamped twice and I cut out just the rose and layered them. I used my CB paisley folder for the yellow background and pierced the holes with my ornare piercing tool. I layered it onto the orange piece that was cut out with my nesties and pierced the holes in the edge.
I chose a fancy front for the card itself and the beautiful designer paper is from Darcie's. I added the pic of the card open to show you the fancy front. Of course I have added some stickles.



I hope you like it......

Be sure to stayed tuned to the High Hopes blog this week....get ready to see some sneek peeks of the new release starting April 16- 19th. The new release will be available to purchase on Sunday the 19th. I must say, Crissy has come up with some fabulous creations ...."You will LOVE them"!!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...
