Easter Greetings!! - High Hopes Ch #18

The New Fabulous HH stamps are up on the High Hopes site!! Yay!!....A few of us Divas are still waiting for our New Stamps.....but we should be receiving them soon. I can hardly wait!!

The High Hopes Challenge this week is brought to us by the very talented Nikki....and she would like to see Easter cards or anything to do with Spring!! Go to the High Hopes Blog to join in and have a chance to win a couple New Release stamps. Many of the Fabulous Diva cards for this weeks challenge feature the New stamps as well!!

I've used an Easter stamp from the previous High Hopes release...."Three Pane Easter Stamp" I give you the link right now ......but as soon as it is back up on the High Hopes site ....I will edit this post. The sentiment I used for this card is called "Script Easter Greetings" The cute little eggs in the bottom corner are "Flower Egg" - "Heart Egg" and "Zig-Zag Egg"

I used prismacolor pencils(oms) and Twinkling h20's

The image is colored, glittered and glazed in places, cut out and pop dotted onto the white panel.

The cute flower trim was given to me by one of my daughters...and although you can hardly tell....every fourth flower I have placed a little pearl on. This who panel was popped up again over the other layers.

The little eggs are colored glittered a bit and popped up.

I originally thought this paper from Debbie Mum (girls pak) might look too kiddish but it also reminded me of spring and Easter so used it anyway.

Paper - GP white, dcwv, Debbie Mums girl paper pak, making memories

Accessories - pearls, lace, trim, pop dots, glitter, stitching, diamond glaze, ribbon

Thanks for looking Everyone and for your Wonderful Comments!!!
