Exciting News!

Hi Everyone!

Remember when I submitted a card to High Hope Stamps to apply for their Design Team? Well....... I was asked to be part of the team yahooo, yippie, whohoooo! I'm doing my happy dance!! My stamping dreams are coming true as I am now part of 2 Design Teams!

Today is my first post with them and I couldn't be more excited. Their stamps are super cute! Today starts a new challenge over on the High Hopes Blog. It's Challenge #252 and the theme is "Anything Goes". Remember though, that in order to enter you must use a High Hopes stamp. Click on the banner below to go to the Blog and get all the details!

The card I am sharing with you today uses the stamp Lady Bug Love. This little bug is absolutely adorable! I fell in love with her the minute I saw her! You can use her for so many different designs!

I used paper from the Doodlebug "Lovebug" collection. This paper is almost as adorable as the bug! I coloured the image up to match the papers with my Copic Sketch markers. I layered the patterned papers with matching cardstock and added a die cut corner border that I popped up with foam squares to add more dimension to my card. Of course I added clear Wink of Stella to the lady bug dots as well as white dots with a fine point Sharpie paint pen. To complete the card I added a ribbon, bow and sentiment.

I decided to leave the inside blank for now. I will add a sentiment when a special occasion arises and send it off to someone special!
