Challenge #21 .... a zig or a zag???

Good morning!! This week's High Hopes challenge comes to us from Anna.....my original stamping idol! The challenge is to use zig zags on your card. It can be a zig zag punch.....zig zag stitching....a zig zag stamp....you get the idea!



Well I just happened to find this fun "stitched" paper in my stash.....the company name is gone, but I would have to guess it's Doodlebug paper....it's just their fun kind of paper!! I also used some zig zag ribbon from American Crafts. The image is Party Girl Florence from High Hopes. She's colored with Prisma pencils & gamsol.....lots of Crystal Effects & glitter on the balloons....& I sponged the sky & ground. Well, I sponged it *after* I colored it. Coloring usually works for me but I just couldn't get it to look right, so I sponged right over it. I thought I had the Happy Bird-day sentiment.....but I can't find it. Doesn't mean I don't have it, just means I can't find it!




I again used my fake Dew Drops....Crystal Accents from Michael's. I use the clear, then using my 1/4" hole punch I punch a few pieces of card stock....in this case Regal Rose....& glue them on. Usually I use my Crystal Effects to glue them on, but this time I used Stickles so they're sparkly pretty......see????



This card almost didn't happen.....we have Pink Eye in our house....ugh!! So far it's Pink Eye - 2, Petermanns - 0!! There's so much going around school....& Pink Eye is pretty tame so I'm not complaining, lol!!

Be sure to check out the other Divas work on the High Hopes blog.....& if you play along you have a chance at winning some goodies!!!!

Have a great week!!
