High Hopes Challenge #26

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a great Easter holiday! I did...just a lot of lazing around and resting. Well it's challenge time again and Crissy gave us a good one this week! The challenge was to use paper piercing in your card layout. Here's mine...

I used Walkabout Wally and his mate Sheila and the leaves are also High Hopes. I'm sorry I have a bad habit of trimming the labels off my designer paper so I can't recall where the paper is from but I have had it for a long time. The same goes for the "Adventure" metal embellishment.

I coloured the images with a combination of different markers. They are as follows:


#12--Light Peach, #23--Cream, #71--Buff, #95--Light Tan, #101--Warm Grey 30%, #132-- Jasmine, #133--Deco Pink, #134--Deco Blue, & #197--Green Tea


YG25--Celadon Green, E37--Sepia


#21--Terra Cotta, WG4--Warm Grey

My cardstock is Bazzil and I used Canson 150lb paper for the stamped image. My ink is Versa Fine--Onyx Black.

This is what the inside of my card looks like. The sentiment is Penny Black's "...your life..." I used my Cuttlebug to crop around the sentiment and embossed the edges.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card. Have a great day!




  1. Sarah, this is great! I have never seen anyone combine these two characters before! I love how they look together! Your coloring is wonderful, and color choices perfect! I love the way you colored the blue flower on her hat and added the matching blue flowers on the leaves. What a sweet card!

  2. What a great card, they look brilliant together. Your colouring is lovely x

  3. Love this card and a great stamp, the leaves are a great touch!
