High Hopes Challenge 42

Good Sunday morning! This week's high hopes challenge was "go for the gold" and is brought to us by diva Jeanne. I have created a sparkly gold card for you today.

I stamped my herald angel which is one of the newly released images from high hopes onto blanc sparkle paper and colored her with copics. I have not pulled out my shimmerz in awhile so I used angel wings on the wings and gold glimmer blingz on the stars of her headpiece and her collar. I used gold stickles on the trumpet. She was cut out and popped up on top of white gold metallic cardstock and then again onto a scalloped circle from gold sparkle cardstock. The base of the card is made from white diamonds cardstock. I used the Friday sketchers sketch from this week for my layout. I used rhinestones on the angel wings and in the center of the scallops. All the gorgeous shimmery cardstock that I used today can be found at Paper Temptress.

Here is a closer look for you

stamps- high hopes herald angel
Cardstock- blanc sparkle, white diamonds, white gold metallic, gold sparkle- all from Paper Temptress
accessories- rhinestones, cb divine swirls folder, angel wings shimmerz, gold glimmer blingz, gold stickles, organdy ribbon, copics

Have a blessed Lord's day Sunday!
