High Hopes meets Priscilla Styles

I made this card for a special someone and also used one of my new High Hopes stamps that I purchased from Bunny Zoe's crafts. These are such cute stamps and she was such fun to color. I used the sketch over at Priscilla Styles and this will also be my very first entry at High Hopes. The challenge at High Hopes is a child like, or child stamp.

One of the DT over at High Hopes used this stamp, added embellies to her boa and used the sentiment that I did. I really didn't copy but it seemed so perfect so I guess I did.

I colored her with Copics and added a few white highlights to her. I had some fiber ribbon (if that's what you call it) and I just cut the fringe off, added glue to the boa, and dropped the fibers on. It kind of looks like feathers even though it isn't. Here is a close up.

Isn't she just the cutest?? The dp is Totally Girl by My Minds' Eye. The cardstock is Neutrals by DCWV. I added some sheer ribbon in the corner, a button with the shank removed and a couple of heart charms.

For the inside I used a SU! stamp, I like your style, and oval nestabilities. I added a little olive green ribbon for the bow.
