HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #29

Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great weekend. The weather has been beautiful here for a couple of days, a little rain here and there but fabulous none the less!!

Today's High Hopes Challenge is brought to you by Ying and she has chosen "Heat Embossing".

The images I have used are "Sweet Dreams" and the "Fanciful Flower Corner". I absolutley love this sentiment, "Kiss of the Sun". These are all from the High Hopes new release.



I embossed all the images, twice, with black and painted them with Tombows. The green background was stamped with the fanciful flower corner image and Perfect medium and clear embossing powder and heat set. I cut out the long leaves and the center of each flower and layered them. I also added some stickles. The Dp is from my stash and I'm not sure where it came from.



I bet you are surpised to see the inside finished....lol!! I also embossed the images for the inside. I used my nesties for the ovals and Versa magic Spanish Olive ink for the edges. I hope you like it.

I hope you will be able join us for this weeks challenge and be sure to check out the High Hopes blog for the POTM for May.


Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by....
