Good morning everyone
I hope you are all having great weekend so far. We are still braving the cold, as many of you are too. At least the snow has stopped here, just super cold...a good day to stay inside and keep warm.

It's time for the High Hopes Challenge and this weeks challenge is brought to you all by me!! I would like you to "Put A Bow on it".

The adorable image I have chosen for my card is "Trish Tea Angel" and "Tea-rrific" sentiment.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I added some frosted lace stickles for her wings. The frame is cut with my nesties and the flowers were made with my MS
hydrangea punch. I used some flatbacked pearls for the flower centers. The fern is also a MS punch. The DP is from Chatterbox.
I hope you like it!!

Be sure to pop by the High Hopes blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Diva's have created to inspire you.

I hope you will have a chance to play along with us this week and be sure to use a High Hopes image on your card.

Have a wonderful Sunday and Thanks so much for stopping by.....


*all products used in making my card are from The Rubber Room and online store.
