{A Weekend of High Hopes}

Good Morning! I hope that all of you had a great weekend! I am sad that it is Monday all ready. I spent a lot of time in my card room this weekend working on this card that I submitted to the High Hopes Guest Designer spot! I know the odds are very slim that I will win one of two coveted "Guest Designer Diva" spots but ya can't win it if you aren't in it, right?! For this card I used one of High Hopes adorable dragon images. So cute! And I did not have a sentiment to go along with the image so I used our laser printer to write my own. I think it is perfect! I used DCWV's new "Animal Crackers" stack, and the SU Colors Bashful Blue, and Green Galore. The sketch I used is Katharina's Sketch. We were asked to use this sketch to make the card we wanted to submit to the guest designer call. One of my favorite things about this card is the "reptilian" Fiskars Texture plate that I used on the background. It matches the dragon PERFECTLY! I love my texture plates! I hope that you guys have Happy Mondays and thank you for visiting my blog today!
