High Hopes Challenge 36- a scrappy challenge

Good morning all! It is father's day here in the US today, do you have any plans? After church we are going to take my hubby out to lunch and then this evening we are having my dad over for dinner.

This week's high hopes challenge is brought to us by Jeanne and it is to use up those scraps. This is a great challenge because as a dp/paper junkie myself I have quite a lot of scraps!

I colored my image with copics and also used coal shimmerz on the black spots and a clear spica glitter pen on the white trim. I used 2 black pearls in the center of the buggy wheels and used tiny rhinestones on the bugs' antennae (not antlers Sue). I chose 2 dp scraps and sewed around all the layers with my sewing machine. Even the ribbon was a small scrap left from a spool I had. The white layer is actually white columns CS from Paper Temptress but it is a bummer that I could not get the texture to show well in the photo and I really tried too.

stamps- high hopes baby buggie
CS- Paper Temptress white columns, noir sparkle, lemon drop, SU dp
accessories- rhinestones, black pearls, stitched grosgrain, copics (C3, C5, C7, C9, R37, R46, R39, E000, E00, R20, Y21, YR23)

I hope you will be able to play along with the challenge this week- after all we all have some sort of scraps don't we? You can check out the challenge prize up for grabs and see some great work from the divas on the high hopes blog.

This card is also for the fun on Friday challenge on Christian Papercrafts Magazine which was to make a baby card with non- traditional baby colors.

Have a blessed day and thanks for coming by!
