High Hopes Challenge - Put a bow on it!!!


Happy Sunday! Wow... my second post today too! This week over at the High Hopes blog our talented designer Karen is asking you to.... Put a bow on it! So simply.... have a bow somewhere on your card or project!

The random winner of this challenge will receive the stamps Chef Pierre and Sentiment "Lovin' from my oven!" Perfect to get you rolling with the love season!


For my card today I have used the sweet image Bubble Love with sentiment Filled with Bubbles. I have coloured my image with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The gorgeous papers which I also used to paper piece my image are Basic Grey Bitter Sweet. I have a great selection of handy 6x6" pads over in my store. I added a little flat back heart to her shoe and also a chocolate 8mm flat back pearl to the center of my bow. To finish a little stickles to my bubbles and butterflies.

Be sure to check out the awesome samples from the rest of the girls!

Hugs,
