High Hopes May "Project of the Month"

This card uses the High Hopes May "Project of the Month" Stamp set. You can get this set for a special sale price for this month.

This Fabulous and Fun set includes......

Oops Ellie.......... Single Peanut...... Bag of Peanuts....... Aww Nuts!........ I Can't Believe I Forgot!

Used the Splitcoast SC 176 sketch for this card. What a great sketch!!

I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils (oms) and used Twinkling h20's to deepen the shading.

The sentiments and peanut bag is popped up using foam dimensionals. The sparkly silver star brad and pretty buttons are from Tina at High Hopes.

Inks - versafine black, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, bashful blue

Papers - whisper white, bazzill cs, costco, my minds eye

Accessories - stickles, ribbon, brad, buttons, embroidery floss, stitching, foam dimensionals

I hope everyone is enjoying spring. I have been working in the garden a little bit each day. It is so nice to see my faithful perennials come up again....Too bad the weeds came up with them....lol.

Have a Great Day Everyone!! Thanks for looking and for all your Wonderful comments!!
