Good morning everyone
I hope you are having a great weekend.

It's time for the High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to us by "Sirpa" and she has chosen..." A card for Baby or a Young Child".

I decided to go with a card for "Baby" and the adorable image I am using is "First Ride".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. The frames were cut with my neaties and the card was cut by measuring 1/4 in. bigger than the largest nestie. I embossed all the layers with a CB folder. The white pearls are Rangers new Enamel Accents. They are self leveling and make a perfect amazing product!! I cut out the image and shaped it with a shaping tool to add some dimension. The DP is from Darcies.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog as the Diva's have some fabulous creations to share with you.
I hope you will have time to play along with us this week and remember to use a High Hopes image on your card to qualify for this weeks prize.

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