A New Challenge Blog

I found a new challenge blog ladies and I have a lot of there stamps !!! High Hopes has a new challenge blog!! So I made a card for the first challenge. I used the snake with the saying from High Hopes. They just had a new release today too how cool !!!
I colored my image in with the copics and matted it onto a few layers, the theme was to use brads so I added some brads and spacers on the top and bottom both.

I have made a sketch that I used on my card if you would like to use it.

I got all my new stamps from Whiff of Joy the other day, The very talented Elizabeth Bell stamps Oh how I love her drawings. I colored them in with my copic markers and glazed gel pens, I used some glitter for the wings, prima flowers. The purple ribbon is from HL and the Orange is from SU. I used the SU wonderful stamp and the Autumn Leaves ticket saying and on that one I used the SU punches.. I added some stickles to flowers on the one card and brads on the other. I also used the nestabilites on them. I have the other new ones I got colored but not enough time to make them into cards yet since I had no electric for most of the day. But thanks Elizabeth and Katharina for such gorgeous stamps.
