High Hopes Challenge #110

Hello everyone......

It's time for the
High Hopes Challenge!!

This weeks challenge is....
Favorite Pet/ Animal

My absolute favorite HH's stamp is

"Frog in Boxers"

This guy always cracks me up!!!
I love the "Irish Blessing" sentiment that
goes with it too...which I have put on
the inside of the card. The flowers are
"Periwinkle Corner"

I embossed the image and sentiments with
black and painted the images with Tombows.
The frame is an embossing folder by Crafts too
on Core' dinations card stock. I sanded the
embossing just a bit. I cut out the center and
added the cloud insert behind the frame.
I used 2 wooden buttons and adhered them to
the frame with my new favorite tabs...
Tombow Power Tabs
These little tabs are amazing for sticking down
embellishments!!
I cut out the frog and kept the clothes line intact
and glued the bakers twine onto the clothes line.
The bakers twine is from the Twinery.
The DP is from Basic Grey.
I embossed the sentiment onto acetate.

Be sure to stop by the
High Hopes Blog

I hope you will have time to play along
with us this challenge and
