High Hopes Challenge #131

Hello everyone.....
It's time for the High Hopes Challenge!!!!

This weeks challenge is brought to us by
and she has a great recipe for us to follow!!

The recipe is....
"1 ribbon, 2 patterned papers and 3 flowers"

For my card this week I am using
"Garden Gate Background"

This was a nice easy card to do with minimal coloring!!
I created the background first with a nesties scallop
oval and distress ink using a sponge dauber.
I stamped the image and embossed it with black
over the background.
I lightly colored the image with Tombows and added
stickles to most of the image. I tried to get a good
shot of all the glitter but it doesn't show up too well.
It is really sparkly in real life!!
The DP is from a MY Minds eye paper pad.
Here is an older tutorial I did on creating
the background.....

Be sure to check out the awesome creations
the Diva's have the share with you today over
on the

Have a great day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
