High Hopes Challenge #36
Good afternoon everyone,woohoo I finally got to squeeze in a challenge.This card was made for the High Hopes challenge,you have to use scraps to make your card.Well as you know,I keep cutting new sheets of paper because my ideas never quite fit the leftovers....lol....Now it may seem strange, but this was made for my friends 40th Birthday,she is having a jungle theme for her party and this being the only jungle image I have at the moment,I just had to use it.I have also made her a pretty card to keep,but this is going to be her fun card.These papers are the ones I had left over from making my Hannah card a few posts ago and I think they are perfect for this image.I am really pleased with myself, as this entire card was made from leftover scraps, even the card base and sentiment tag were already cut leftovers.I did not cut up one sheet of new paper.........woohoo,I will have to try and challenge myself with this again as it is a great way of using up your scrap papers.
Stamps - High Hopes Stamps and Stampin'Up! Upsy Daisy Sentiment
Ink - Stazon Jet Black and Stampin'Up! Tangerine Tango
Papers - Stampin'Up! Haiku DP,Whisper White and Tangerine Tango c/s
