High Hopes Challenge #112

Good Morning everyone.....

It's time for the High Hopes Challenge
This weeks challenge is brought to us by

and she has chosen
"Say Thanks"

My card this week was created out of sheer!! I had been creating a lot of
Parchment cards and I had my stuff all over my rather than put it all away and then
bring it all back out I thought I would make
a card with my High Hopes stamps!!!

The fabulous flowers I have
used on my card are...

"Hoppy Single Flower"
"Daisy Button"
"DH Double Daisy"
"Open Thank You"

I started with the card and a piece of parchment
paper, formed the card and embossed it with my
swiss dots CB folder. I stamped the flowers and
sentiment onto copy paper with black ink to
use as a pattern. I traced the patterns with my
Tinta ink and mapping pen. Removed the paper
from the pattern and embossed and pierced
all the flowers with different techniques.
The background of the sentiment was done
with a grid and arrow tool as well as parts of
the flowers. I cut them out with my 2 split tool.
I used my Tombow Power Tabs to adhere the
flowers and sentiment to the card and
added some flat backed pearls. and an
organza bow.
To see the detail of my on it

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog as the
Diva's have some awesome creations to share

I hope you will have time to play along
with us this week and

your card to join in the challenges!!!
