Happy Easter to all of you....
I hope you are all having a great weekend so far.

It's time for the High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to us by the lovely "Jeanette" and she has chosen "Anything but a Card".

I decided to make a Box in a Bag with a bit of a twist. Instead of using card stock I have used acetate as I wanted to see through it.
For the tag I have used the adorable image "Snow Yummy" and "Snowman Soup" sentiment.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. The tag was made with my nesties. I used my Inkssentials white gel pen for the dots. I embossed the white bling card stock with my snowflake CB folder. I used my MS icicle punch and snowflake border punch for the small snowflakes. The snowflakes are the leftovers from the MS snowflake border punch. I also added some stickles.

On the back of the tag I stamped the sentiment..."Snowman Soup" with Stazon black ink and added more layered snowflakes.
Just a little tip if you are going to give it a try.....The only difference I found from using card stock to acetate is you must use a extra sticky double sided tape.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog as the Diva's have come up with some amazing creations for this weeks challenge.

Have a fabulous day and Thanks so much for stopping by...


*all High Hopes stamps are available at The Rubber Room online store.
