High Hopes CH#13 - "C'mon baby light my fire!"

The Fun Challenge this week on the HH Challenge blog is, "dry embossing". Join in and you will also have a chance to win some Fabulous HH stamps!! check out the Gorgeous creations made by the Divas this week right Here

You may also be interested in the Jan POTM......a fabulous set of stamps at a special price!! The samples made by the Divas are Gorgeous!!!

I also made this card to participate in the ... Splitcoaststampers - TLC202 Tacky Glitter.

The Cute stamps I used on this card are both from High Hopes ....."Matchmakin' Maynard" and "Light My Fire" sentiment

The dragon is colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and Twinkling H2o's.

The heart and dragon and sentiment are popped up on foam dimensionals.

The wings and little hearts are glittered.

I used redline tape and fine glitter for the glitter stripes on the bottom paper. This was so easy and the glitter stays on so nicely ...I know I will be using this fun technique again!

The heart is nestabilities.....I made holes in the the scallop edge using my Japanese hole punch.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border.

Paper: Georgia Pacific, bazzil, wild asparagus, Costco

Ink: versafine black, bashful blue

Accessories: nesties, ribbon, martha stewart punch, stitching, glitter, sakura glue pen, redline tape, Cuttlebug embossing folders - heart and swiss dot
