High Hopes Challenge ~ It seemed like a good idea….

High Hopes Stamps - Page 024

Happy Sunday! Here is my card for this week’s High Hopes challenge. Our guest diva Melanie has asked us to add some texture to your card!

I just had to ink up this funny little dragon. He is one of the new Dustin Pike images and is called “Troubled Travis”. The sentiment is so perfect to go along with the image and isn’t so true. To add texture I embossed some of my cardstock and I distressed the edges of my two inner panels. They look just about as roughed up as poor little Travis! I found the sketch for my card from this week’s Mojo Monday.

Awh, you just gotta love Travis! Fantastic texturing/distressing hun (my distressing looks more "traumatised" than distressed). Your colouring is sublime. Hugs, Squirrel xx
