High Hopes Challenge - Use your favourite Embellishment

We're back from our Summer break and raring to go! Our new challenge over at the High Hopes blog has just started and this week we are asking you to use your favourite embellishment. A nice and easy challenge so a great excuse to ink up your favourite HH stamps too!

I am sure you know that my favourite embellishment is my flat back pearls... I can't remember the last card I made when I didn't use them! lol I also used two of my favourite Martha Stewart Punches - Classic Butterfly and Heart Lace Edger.

The sweet image is Puppy Love Frame. This stamp is so versatile and I inked up the images without his frame. My puppy is stamped in Memento onto Concord Record card and coloured with Prismcolor Pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend... also adding my favourite stickles Star Dust. The papers are Basic Grey Green at Heart. Do you love the pretty frame...? this is Nellie's Choice Die - Multi round. All items in orange can be found in my store including tons more High Hopes Stamps!!!

Hope you can play along with us and remember each challenge you have the chance of winning a fabulous High Hopes stamp of your choice! Be sure to pop over to the blog for oodles of inspiration from the rest of the team!

Also I just wanted to mention that for all you Tilda fans there is a new challenge over at the Totally Tilda Challenge blog. I can't wait to play along with this one!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
