Kisses



Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday :) Two more days and the weekend is here!!! :):) My card today is my submission for this week's High Hopes Challenge. Our challenge this week was to use lace somewhere on our card. I didn't have lace ribbon so I had to improvise :) I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch as my lace element.

I first stamped the stone wall (from High Hopes stamps) with Memento Black Ink onto PTI cardstock and colored it with copics. I stamped the princess and frog (also from High Hopes) onto a separate piece of PTI cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added Glossy Accents to the frog's lips and Pink Stickles to the princess's crown and gown. I also added Gold Geo-Shaped Sparklers to her crown.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Rose Red. I layered SU's Regal Rose on top of that followed by my design paper from the new SU catalog. I then used my rectangle nesties to cut out my main image and the scalloped rectangles. I adhered the image to the rectangles with dimensionals. I then adhered the princess and frog to the wall with dimensionals. The sentiment is from an old $1 Studio G set. I added a white glittery foam heart sticker from Michael's. Finally, I added Primas and added this cool Lip Button to the center.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please make sure to stop by Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Group on Papercraft Planet for a cool giveaway going on right now. See you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine :)
