Christmas Prima Tin - High Hopes Challenge #10

This week the High Hopes Challenge is to use metal on our card or creation and is brought to us by the very talented Amy. You can used metal of any kind. Be sure to join in as you could win these Beautiful HH stamps - Sweet Savior and "Oh Come Let Us Adore Him" sentiment.

For this challenge I choose to use brads and to decorate this empty Prima flower tin. I got this idea from Michelle and you can see her Fabulous tin right here. Thanks Michelle!!!

This Fabulous Santa is from High Hopes and is called "Santa Portrait"

I used my prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's for this Cute Santa...which was so quick and easy to color!!

Scribbles was used on his hat fur....I sprinkled glitter on while it was wet. I used my handy glue pen for the beard and mustache and sprinkled on some glitter.

To adhere the papers and ribbon to tin...I used redline tape. For the embellishments I use Aileen's tacky glue as well as red line tape.

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel, cranberry crisp

Paper - GP white, glitter, basic grey

Accessories: flowers, brads, snowflake, martha stewart punch, glitter, stickles, ribbon, nesties, redline tape.

Thank you all for looking.....and for all your Fabulous comments!! Be sure and enter for my blog candy at the post above this one.....You have till Wednesday night Dec 3rd!!
