HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #49









Good morning everyone,
I hope you are all having a great weekend. It's time for the High Hopes Challenge and this weeks challenge is brought to us by the lovely Nikki and she has chosen "Non Traditional Christmas Colours"....so no red and green!!

The adorable image I have used for my card is "Dapper Dan" and the sentiment is "Snowman Greeting".



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the highlights. The snowflakes were made with my MS punch and I added some diamond dust. The blue dot paper is from Graphic 45 and the white crystal paper is from the Paper Co....I think! The sentiment was stamped with Stazon black onto shrink film and heated and shrunk.
I hope you like it.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes blog and check out the fabulous creations the Diva's have created to inspire you.

Thanks so much for stopping by.....

KAREN x

are available at The Rubber Room
