Happy Wednesday! Yes, I am running late with this posting! The High Hopes challenge started yesterday but I have been a super busy chickie these days! As I have mentioned before, I have join a local gym in an effort to whip myself back into shape. Too many hours blurfing (blog surfing) has to be counteracted with some hard work at the gym! ACK! My body may mutiny!
Our challenge this week was buttons and so I chose this sweet image because I knew I wanted to replace his button with a real one. The coloring was done with Copic Sketch markers and after cutting it out, I thought that it would look great against plain Kraft cardstock. The stamp itself is so intricate that I thought adding DP would probably be visually overwhelming! To soften it up, I paper pierced around the edges of the cards and then added some faux stitches with a white gel pen. This luxurious May Arts checked ribbon provided the way to incorporate another button!
Voilà, another Christmas card done! Here is my supply list. i have linked each photo to take you where you can get them!
Now, Let's see some buttons on your card! Just remember that you must use a High Hopes image to be entered into the drawing for 3 Free High Hopes Stamps!!
