High Hopes challenge #51 ~ a sketch!!

Good morning everyone!! It was a gorgeous day yesterday, sunny & about 65 degrees & it looks like today is going to be just as beautiful!! Mother Nature is giving us one last chance to get those outside chores done!!

For this week's High Hopes challenge, we have a sketch created by Lacey. I love sketches....I don't have to think too hard, although the card still seems to take me just as long to make!


Here is the sketch....




And here is my card.....


I used Mooshie Steals A Kiss, one from the last release that I hadn't gotten to ink up before now!! I love the High Hopes moose!! The image is colored with Prismas & gamsol, & I sponged the edges a bit with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. The papers are SU's Riding Hood Red, DCWV (the olive paper) & DCWV Christmas Stack from a few years ago. The Riding Hood Red layer was embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder.....I added 3 brads to the bottom....& some Primas & punched leaves to the corner.




Hopefully you can see the Fun Flock in this close up.....I used it on Mooshie's scarf, coat fur & socks (or are those fur lined boots??)

I hope you get a chance to play with this fabulous sketch!! If you do, link your card to the High Hopes blog & you'll be entered to win some High Hopes goodness!!

Hope you all have a great week!! Enjoy this weather....we all know it's not going to last!!
