High Hopes Challenge #22!!


Happy Sunny Sunday everyone.....at least it is here in SW Ontario!! It's actually supposed to warm up a little bit today too.....could it really be Spring??? Naaaaaaah!!!

We've got a FAN-tastic challenge for you all today at the High Hopes Blog! Our wonderful Guest Diva Diana has a super challenge!! It's to use NO PATTERNED PAPER!! Now, I don't know about you, but I used dp on almost everything I do!! So this was a tough one for me! But you can use dp for inspiration, just not on your actual card. You can use stamps to make your own dp, you can use embossing folders, or even create your own scenery for your image! I can't wait to see what you make!!

I used this image of Bunny Love that my friend Andrea loaned me! I think I'm going to have to get me this adorable stamp!!! I coloured them in using my Copic markers. The image is quite large and my card is 5 1/4 ins square, so it takes up most of the open space on the card anyway. I chose to use the sketch from this week's Papertake Weekly challenge....it was perfect!!

The card base is Close to Cocoa with Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette for the layers. Obviously I distressed every layer to add texture and interest to the card, but still make it a simple design. I stamped the first part of the Hugs and Hugs sentiment on the bottom and added a pink rhinestone heart. I finished it off with this sweeeet frilly ribbon that I picked up somewhere ages ago!




Well, I hope you can join us for our fun little challenge!! Head over to the High Hopes blog to check out the awesomeness that the Divas have created for ya this week! I must say, they've outdone themselves again!!!
