HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #30...and Happy Mothers Day!!

Good morning everyone;
Happy Mothers Day!! I hope you all are having a great weekend so far.

High Hopes Challenge #30 is brought to you by Anna and she has chosen "One for the Boys". The Divas have come up with some fabulous cards this week, so go on over and be prepared to get inspired to make a card for the man or boy in your life.

I have chosen the "Garden Beetle" and "Best Dirt" image and sentiment for my card this week.



I embossed the image twice with black and painted it with Tombows. I cut the wings off both images and then layered one pair behind the beetle, to give it a little dimension. I used some wire for his antennas. I embossed and painted the mushrooms and glued them onto the ribbon. The tools have been painted with Gelly Roll metallic silver. I added glossy accents to the flower center and the silver part of the tools.
I also added some stickles. The DP is from Darcie's.


I hope you will be able to play along with us this week and you will have a chance to win some fabulous High Hopes stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by.....
