It's time for the High Hopes Challenge.
This weeks challenge is brought to us by Debby
and she has chosen


The adorable image I am using on my card is

"Snowy Portrait"

By artist Laurie Furnell

I have been working on a new quilt top and as I was
working away I had a thought...."I wonder what a quilted
fabric card would look like".
Well that's what I have created for my card today.

The background is made from fabric and I machine
quilted the line pattern onto it. There is batting in between
the fabric and cardstock layers. It is really difficult
to see by the pic's but in RL it is soft and puffy!!

I embossed the image with black and painted
it with Tombows. I added some diamond stickles to the
snowflakes on the scarf and sentinment.
I used my nesties for the circles and ovals and embossed
them with my CB swiss dot folder. I sewed the buttons on to
the corners and used my hot glue gun to add the
image and sentiment. I added some faux stitching to
the card front with my copic multi liner.

I hope you like it.
