High Hopes Challenge #42!!

Good morning super stampers!!! Sorry I've been MIA the last couple of days but I've been super busy with work....AND yesterday I hopped on a bus at 6:30am and went to a Stamp Convention with my pals!! I had SO much fun, bought a LOT of stuff (not just stamps) and met some amazingly super talented gals that I have only ever 'met' online!! It was a fantastic day and I'll have stories and photos to share soon!!

On to today's challenge!! This week our hostess is the always fabulous Jeanne and she has called it Go for the Gold!!! She would like you to use gold somewhere in your design....so use gold cardstock, patterned paper, embellishments etc. Just show us some gold!!

For my card, I've been itchin' to play with this new Herald Angel stamp for ages....so I inked her up and stamped her on Neenah cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The patterned papers I used are from the Imaginisce Candy Cane Lane line from last year (as I haven't purchased any new Christmas papers for this year....yet). The layout I used is from this week's Friday Sketchers challenge...isn't it perfect??

I coloured her in with my Copic markers and here are the numbers I used: E00, E11, R20, B91, E42, E43, E30, YG93, YR21 and YR23. I also used E30 around the embossed frame of the main layer.

The card base is a 6x6 square of Cranberry Crisp with Old Olive for matting. I used my Apron Lace Fiskars border punch on the middle strip, added some gold cording and tied it in a bow. I added some Prima poinsettias with gold brads and some more brads in each corner. I attached a little flag tag with the sentiment and pop dotted everything. Then I decided that my angel needed to sparkle a little bit so I painted her stars and wings with Gold Glimmer Shimmerz. Isn't she sweet???

Now hop on over to the HH Blog and check out all the eye candy that the design team has left ya! Then be sure to join in the challenge and have a chance to win some rubber goodness!

Well, I'm going to go play with all my new schtuff!!! Everyone else is still asleep in my house, so hopefully I can get a few things done before they get their lazy butts outta bed!! Have a stampin' good Sunday!!!
