HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #45
Good morning everyone;
Here it is Sunday again, time for The High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by Jeanne and she has chosen...."Playing Favorites". Jeanne would like you all to make a card with your favorite High Hopes image. Well, I don't know about you but this was an extremely difficult challenge for me. I have waaayyy too many favorite images...so I decided to go with an oldie but goodie... "Country Snowman and Snowman Greeting". Is this not the most adorable snowman....ever!!
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the white dots and highlights. I also used some stickles. I embossed the whole card with my CB snowflake folder and used my MS punch for the icicles. The red was cut with my fancy pinking scissors and the orange paper is from Darcie's. I used some diamond dust for the snow. The lg snowflake was punched with my MS punch and the small ones with my EK Success punch. I curled some red wire and attached the sm. snowflakes. I added a clear dew drop to the centers of the snowflakes.
I finished the inside with a small oval nestie cut-out of the image and the "Snowman Greeting" sentiment. I really like the way the embossing shows through onto the inside as well.
I hope you all have time to play along with us this week and don't forget to stop by the High Hopes blog and see what the other Diva's have created to inspire you.
Have a wonderful day, Thanks so much for stopping by.....
