"Joy" - High Hopes Ch#23

This week's HH challenge is brought to us by the totally talented Niki!!! The fun challenge this week is called Buttons Galore!....Stop in at the HH Challenge Blog to see all the creative and Fabulous designs the Divas have made......Join in ...and you'll have a chance to win a couple of really cute High Hopes stamps!

The Sweet Bunny I've used on this card is called "Curious Bunny" ....I've also used the Splitcoaststampers SK220 to make this card.

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and Twinkling h20s to color this image.

The image panel is popped up on foam tape....and the bow and butterfly are partially popped up. I've used glitter on the butterfly and bow.... a little Shimmerz (angel wings) on the flower. I've attached the Joy charm with wire to a bit of gold chain I purchased at Dollarama.

Papers - GP white, SU, DCWV

Ink - versafine black, mellow moss, creamy caramel, old olive marker

Accessories - flowers, buttons, glitter, stickles, lace , embroidery floss, stitching, piercing, charm, nesties, shimmerz, wire, chain

We're having some strange weather here.......we still have a couple feet of snow on the ground and it is raining.......road conditions are going to be very icy by tonight. But hey!!...rain...that's a sign of spring ....so that's a good!!

Thanks for looking everyone....and for all your Wonderful comments!!
