High Hopes Challenge #101


It's time for the High Hopes Challenge.

This weeks challenge is brought to us by
and she has chosen
"Glitter or Sparkle"

The adorable image I am using for my card is
"Leapin' Larry"
Leapin' Lilypads

I embossed the image with black and painted it
with Tombows. I stamped, embossed painted and
cut out 4 extra flowers and leaves. The oval frames was
made with my nesties. I stamped and embossed the
sentiment onto acetate. The DP is from a
DCWV paper pack.
I coiled some fine wire and made a spring, hot gluing
it to the back of the frog....which makes him jiggle when
you hold the card. More like a dancing frog than a
leaping one, but fun none the!!

I made a quick video snippet of Larry Leapin' .....
thought you might get a chuckle out of it!!
And yes....I know, I have way too much time
on my!!

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog and
check out the fabulous glittery and sparkly
creations the Diva's have to share with you.

I hope you will have time to play along with us
and remember that the challenge will run for 2 weeks
and on the off week we will be sharing tutorials created by
the Diva's on all different types of techniques.
Our lovely Lacey has a card drive going on to for a very
special little boy who is recovering in hospital.
