High Hopes Challenge #13

Hello all!! It's Sunday again & time for another High Hopes challenge!! This week's challenge is to use dry embossing on your card. Easy for me, since I *heart* my Cuttlebug!! I thought I had just about every folder for the CB, but I'm seeing a lot of new ones lately!

For my card I used a stamp from last year's jungle release, Neil Diamondback. Oh my gosh, I just got that funny, lol!! Anyway, I colored Neil with Prismas, cut him out, then thought "Oh wait, he'd look great with some clear embossing" so I did that step AFTER the cutting. Not the easiest way to do it, but it worked. He's nice & shiny. I used the Swiss Dots folder on the panel behind him, & the Mosaic folder on the brown panel in the background. The paper is from the Basic Grey Sulty pad, & the green is SU's Kiwi Kiss. First time I used that color, can you believe it?? Anyway, I kept the whole card pretty simple.....no embellishments....because this is the card that is going to Tina's grandpa for his birthday. You can read about that request IN THIS POST. His birthday isn't until the 21st so you have plenty of time to send him a card, if you'd like!!


Here is the inside. I used the Ssspecial Day saying, also from the jungle release, & decorated it with a scrap of the Sultry paper I had left over. I sure hope grandpa likes it!!

Be sure to pop over to the High Hopes blog to check out what the other Divas created! As always, their work is jaw dropping!! You also can enter to win a couple of goodies by making your own card using dry embossing, then leaving a comment with the link to your card IN THIS POST.

Thanks so much for looking, I hope you have a great Sunday!! We are in for a cooooooooollllddd week here in Wisconsin. I believe the high on Tuesday will be a balmy 1 degree!! I'm so ready for spring!!!
