High Hopes Challenge - Creative Borders

Hello everybody :O) what a wonderfully bright day, is a little nippy but the sun does be a shining! yay! not much on the agenda today through choice lol I have loads to do but not got that hat on :O)


I have made a card for the High Hopes Challenge, this week the theme is "Creative Borders"

I have used Promarkers and Copic ciaos to colour the image, and the sentiment is by High Hopes to. The patterned paper is DCWV, and I punched the little circles out with a hole punch from that same paper. The borders are made up of the sizzix die, and then I dotted using the inkessentials pen around the outer border, I know technically it is a frame, so understand if it doesnt count, but I enjoyed doing this cheerful card :O)

Thanks for Looking.x

Well I think I may just go and sit at my desk and fiddle about a bit until a card comes together, its unlike me not to know what images I want to use on cards, usually I have something floating around in my head, but not today, so headies on and a sing song and I may be back later if the fiddling works right lol Thanks for stopping by.xxx

Loving your card, great idea to add the circles to the frame. Think the other frame should pass ok, wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it lol.

SemSee said...

This is AWESOME hun! Particularly like the tiny circles you've punched with a hole punch (I must remember that tip!) and the fact that you've not put them in colour order (something I would have done which would have looked naff!). Also love the black matting card and the white inkessential pen dots. Really, really well thought out and clever card!
Hugs, Sem x
PS Can't wait to see what you do with Gorjuss number 2! (Didn't mean to make that rhyme, LOL!).
