WOW! High Hopes really had some neat NEW stamps!!
I decided to use some "old" High Hopes stamps in this week's challenge #81 - Anything Goes!!

On the front of the card, I used the stamp Ms. Griffin. I cut out the image after I had colored it with Copic pens. I used colors R27, R29, Y35, W1, W3, W5, and went around the edge of the picture with 100. I used a Blender Pen to make the gray feathers look shaded. a Glitter pen was used on feather marks, and and on marks on the feet. Foam Adhesive circles are used to raise the image.
I used cardstock pieces for the front, dry embossing them with Cuttlebug folders. Under Ms. Griffin, I used Nestabilities to cut out the cardstock and Designer paper used. The Dew Drops and flower are adhered to the card with extra sticky red tape.

Inside of the card, I used Designer papers that have a Nature theme.
On the top section, I stamped the Rock Wall with Small Monkey Mike sitting on the wall. These images were also colored with Copics. On the wall, I used E30, G05, G07, RV09, RV11, W1 and W5; the edges of the images were traced around with 100. These images were also raised with Foam Adhesive Circles.
On the lower section, I used Copics to color all images on this section. Stanley Snake is colored with E35, G05, G12, R27, RV14, and YG03. Mushroom #2 is colored with B000, G05, V12, and RV09.
The Cardstock in the middle of the page is Natural White (Stamping Up), surrounded by a small piece of a green cardstock with raised dots on it.

I thought this High Hopes stamp, Lenny's Love Me Nots, was so appropriate for this card!! Lenny looks so happy! This is a perfect card to send to someone for their birthday!

I used Copic pens to color this dragon image. Colors used were B02, G07, RV09, V04, V12, Y17, and YR65. I also used a purple glitter pen on the dragon, & a yellow glitter pen on the teeth and the flower center.
The wording is also High Hopes. After stamping it and cutting the phrase out, I went around the cardstock with the RV09 Copic pen.
The flower and DP came from a Card Kit I had received.
