High Hopes Challenge 95

Hello Ladies ! Welcome to MY first High Hopes Challenge as a Guest Designer.I'm so thrilled and nervous. I hope you like my first creation for the challenge.
So this week's challenge theme is STAIR STEP CARD.

Before I show you my card I must tell those new to the Challenge rules:

You must remember that you must use a High Hopes image to be entered into the drawing

for 3 Free High Hopes Stamps!!

If you upload your card to Splitcoast stampers, please use keyword HHC95:

(which stands for High Hopes Challenge 95).

Now if you need a High Hopes stamp, there are many stores that carry High Hopes stamps including the Diva Stores(which I have shopped at ) :

Nikki Fairbairn - Bunny Zoe's Crafts based out of the UK/Europe

Lacey Stephens - Stamp and Create based out of the US

Amy Leggate - Paper Romance based out of Canada

Karen Goguen/Cathy Siroski - The Rubber Room based out of Canada

Amy Wegener - Stampin' Stuff based out of Australia

And last but not least......HAVE FUN! ! ! So onto my card... I used the adorable Dustin Pike image called Christmas Mouse. Kinda looks like me when I'm trying to decorate the tree.Without fail those stinkin' lights are tangled every time!! LOL. I mounted the image onto a Spellbinder Nestabilitie.
The PP are from My Mind's Eye.It is from last year but still love it.Now on the first step I added a QK die string of lights.I cut it out of white and colored with my Copics.On the back step I used another QK die label and added the sentiment.I added some flowers,leaves and little touches pearls.

Now I wanted to show you some close ups of the lights because I added some Glossy's VERY hard to get a good pic so you can see the dimension of the lights.

Oh by the way all that little specs of gold you see is my adding of Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold over the ENTIRE card.Just for added touch.heehee.

So I hope you enjoyed my card.Be sure to check out the rest of the DIVAS.So much talent there!And when you've done that ,please do JOIN us ! !

I FREAKIN ♥ IT! What a great way to start your GD with HH!! This is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad you told us you colored all the lights with your Copics after punching them on white. I was wondering if you cut each one with the die and used different colored paper. That would have taken forever!! Love the specs of gold. Great card!
