High Hopes Guest DT Call

This is my submission to the High Hopes Guest Designer Call here. Blizzard conditions today in SW Ontario so not the greatest of days to take a picture.

This is Jenny's Glow Bugs, one of High Hopes' new releases. Isn't she the sweetest? The sentiment is a portion of another new High Hopes release, Let your light shine! cut out with my Tiny Tags CB die. Cardstock is SU and the 3 pieces of DP by Prima was sent to me by my wonderful friend Bernie. Ribbon I received as part of a ribbon share and the charm was sent to me by another wonderful friend Nikki. I thought about adding a few more embellishments but didn't want to take away from the beautiful paper so I've kept it pretty simple. The layout is by the talented Katharina. Image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics and stickles for the glow bug wings - just couldn't resist adding sparkle.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Have a great weekend,
Maria
