"Ho ho hoo.." High Hopes Challenge #8

This week it is the very talented Michelle's turn for the High Hopes Challenge and Michelle wants to see "Buttons and Brads" on your card!! I love buttons and brads.....so this was lots of fun for me!

Another great prize is being offered this week.....Woodland Santa and Merry Christmas sentiment!!....Go to the High Hopes Blog to join in and see all the fabulous creations the Divas have made for this week.

For this card I used a past "A Spoonful of Sugar" sketch You can find the sketch right here. This fun sketch was also created by my daughter...Trina. Thanks for a the great sketch Trina!!

On this card I used one of last years High Hopes stamps....called "Santa's Helper" you can find this cute and fun stamp right here. The sentiment is computer generated.

The image is colored with prismacolor pencils and h20's. I used stickles on the brads to glitter them up and foamy's to pop up the image and sentiment.

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, bordering blue

Paper - GP white, bg figgy pudding, treasures cs

Accessories - brads, buttons, embroidery floss, stitching, glitter, stickles, ribbon, foam dimentionals
