High Hopes Challenge #56

I am sad to say that this is my final card as a High Hopes Guest Diva, Wow where have those last 3 months gone? I have had so much fun sharing ideas and learning from these very talented Ladies, It has been such an honour to be a Diva. Thanks girls for having me.
Now for this week's challenge (HHC56),  Amy L is our Hostess and she wants  us to create a tall card.  Here's mine.

I chose this great stamp as it was just the perfect size and shape. I decided to go with a rustic feel by using the pumpkin coloured cardstock and some (really old) corrugated card, It has been in my card stash for at least 8 years, but as I say, one day you will need it and that one day arrived. To embellish the card I picked out some star shaped buttons and tied them with some scrappers floss. I then added  dark green brads on the other 3 corners..
I coloured using Prismacolor pencils and blended with odourless mineral spirits.
I have highlted some places with a marvy gold glitter marker.

Here is a close up. You can just see a bit of sparkle on the beaver's tail, it is also on the antlers and the goose. In real life it looks great.

To visit the High Hopes Blog Challenge click HERE, don't forget there is a prize given away each week. A new challenge appears each week on Sunday.
It is SO easy to enter. Simply choose one of your High Hopes Stamps and create a card within the theme, remember this week is a tall card, link it to the challenge post and you are in with a chance, so why not go for it.
This is the last challenge for the year and the High Hopes Blog will be back on the 3rd of January with a new challenge.

I hope you have all enjoyed my High Hopes cards over the last 3 months and of course I will continue to keep making cards using their stamps, so just keep popping back.
Wishing you all the very best for the Holiday Season.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All

Really nice coloring job on these guys! I love the colors you put on the goose and the soft grey on the bear. Nice blending on all the animals. Well done!
