High Hopes challenges are back!!

Yay!!! It's the first Sunday of January & we are back with the challenges on the High Hopes blog!! This week's challenge is to use tearing somewhere on your card/project. I haven't torn in ages, so this WAS a challenge!!

I used Candi Tooth Fairy for my card......isn't she cute?? She's part of this month's POTM set....more details about that later on!!



I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, cut her out & popped her on a scalloped circle that I cut out with my Nesties, then embossed with my CB Swiss Dots folder. I added LOTS of sparkle to her ~~ her wings are covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, & I used Stickles on all of her stars & her wand. The papers are all Basic Grey Sultry ~~ which I got for quite a deal at Michaels! Love that they carry the Basic Grey pads now! I clear embossed the tooth, punched a hole in it & threaded some gold cord through it so it hangs like a charm. I also embossed the toothbrush, & the floss, to which I added a piece of black cross stitch floss. This card took me quite a while, with all the embossing & cutting & trying to figure out where to put everything, lol, but I do like how it turned out!




Here's the inside........

I used another piece of the BG Sultry & a scalloped circle to tie it in with the front of the card. I stamped the rest of the sentiment, added some photo corners, & my first challenge card of 2009 was done!! You MUST go check out the High Hopes challenge blog to see what my fellow divas came up with!!!

All of the stamps I used on this card are included in the January Project of the Month set. You get Candi Tooth Fairy, the tooth, the floss, the toothbrush, & the saying all for 25% off when purchased together. What a deal!!

I hope you decide to join us in this challenge. If you make something, please include a link in the comments of THIS POST on the challenge blog. Once again, there will be a drawing & one lucky stamper will win some fabulous High Hopes goodies!

Thanks for looking & have a splendid Sunday!!
