High Hopes Challenge # 27

Good morning everyone;
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We had a beautiful day yesterday, warm and sunny, just perfect!!

This weeks High Hopes challenge is brought to you by Kimmie and she has chosen "Distressing". I don't usually do too much distressing on my cards, so this was a fun challenge for me.

For todays challenge I have chosen "Gordon Groundhog". Is he not the coolest groundhog...ever!! He just seems to have that male thang goin' on and the sentiment is so perfect. Definitely one of my favorites!!



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I stamped the flower twice and cut out one and layered it. I used my nesties labels for the image and background. The DP is from Imaginisce. I sponged some brown ink on the edges and cut the tag with my spellbinders tag die. I also added some stickles.

I hope you like it and Thanks for stopping by.....
