High Hopes Challenge #10!!!


Sorry that I didn't post yesterday. We all got up super early and headed out to the stores to do some Christmas shopping. I had very little done before today and let's say I've put a dent in it now!!

Then when we got home, we visited with my parents for a bit who came down this way to do some shopping too. After that, I got busy preparing for today's Stamp and Scrapbook Sale!!! Yipppeeeee!!

Anyhoo, today's High Hopes Challenge is brought to you by the wonderfully talented Aussie stamper, Amy!!! I simply adore her colouring and her style!! Her challenge for you this week is to use metal on your design! You can use metal brads, metal charms, metal hardware, metal wire, even the faux metal technique if you're feeling ambitious!!

For my card, I've decided to use Woodland Santa again. He is just so happy and joyful, don't you think? I of course, pulled out my Be Merry dp again (I think it's my fave Christmas paper this year). I coloured the image in using my Copic markers and added Stardust Stickles to the snow and his hat. The card base is Regal Rose and the accent cardstocks are Cool Caribbean and Pink Pirouette. The sketch I used was this week's sketch challenge on SCS. I added some white satin ribbon across the middle and tied it in a bow, then pop dotted the main image overtop.




For the metal part of the challenge I added some silver brads in two of the corners and used some silver hodgepodge hardware to frame the sentiment which was stamped on some of the patterned paper. Ain't he cute?? Real men do wear pink, you know. *giggle*

Well, wish me luck on my sale today....I hope a lot of people come because I really don't want to put it all away!!!
