High Hopes challenge #34 ~ a sketch!

Good morning everyone!! It's Sunday & that means it's High Hopes challenge day!! Today we have a sketch challenge for you! Gotta love sketch challenges....half the work is done for you!




I chose to flip the sketch for my card....



I used the adorable Ladybug Stroll.....colored with Prismas & gamsol (shocking, I know). The papers are all Basic Grey Bittersweet, except for the almost-but-not-quite black matting, which is Bazzill. The red layer was embossed with Swiss Dots.....the flowers are all punched....& the swirl is a Sizzlit die. I used my Spica glitter pens....clear for mama's dress ruffles & black for their doolyboppers.




I was hoping you could see the shimmer in this picture, but I'm not seeing it. But isn't that baby bug the cutest???

Go check out what the other divas created on the High Hopes blog.....if you play, & link your card to THIS POST you could win some High Hopes goodies!!

So what are you up to this fine Sunday? I've actually caught a bug (but not a ladybug!!) & am feeling rather out of sorts. Sore throat....headache....ugh. Must be from all the end of school excitement! So....I may just hang out & do some laundry & catch up on some blogs. I have to clean my house but.....no rush....did I mention school is out & summer vacation has officially begun? :) I have all summer to clean my house, & all summer for the boys to trash it!!!

You gave that Momma and baby so much class! I love the gorg papers you put with them, and of course your coloring, which is always stunningly beautiful! Sweet embellishing too.
I heard it said that cleaning the house while the kids are still growing is like shoveling the driveway while it's still snowing!! LOL
Feel better soon!
HUGZ!
