High Hopes Challenge #35 - Lotsa Circles!!!

Happy Sunday everyone! Our new challenge over at the High Hope blog has just started and our talented diva Janette is asking us to use lots of circles on our cards this week. I haven't used my circle/scalloped circle nesties for a while, so thought this was a good opportunity to get them out.

The stamps used on my card this week are from the June Project of the Month.

S-127 Bedelia Butterfly
E-221 Sprinkled
G-260 Fanciful Flower
G-259 Fanciful Flower Corner
M-069 Fanciful Flower Bdr.

The regular price for all these stamps would be $45.70 CDN for woodmounted and $22.85 CDN for unmounted. BUT, for the month of June when you order the stamps together as a set, the sale price is $34.28CDN for woodmounted, $17.14CDN for umounted and $25.71CDN for clingmounted!!!

If you'd like to order this set, please email High Hopes at

The papers used on my card are from the DCWV Green stack . This set of papers has some real fun designs amongst them. I stamped my little scene then cut around it using my largest circle nestabilitie. I then stamped Bedelia's wings a second time to colour and layer. My image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have also added a little stickles to Bedelia's hearts and water.

Be sure to check out the awesome creations from the rest of the team. I hope you will join in with us and don't forget that this week one lucky player will win the stamps used on Janette's gorgeous card!

Have a great day!
