Hello High Hopes Fans!!

Michelle O
Had some fun with an older image.. this one is a great pick me up image! "Buggy Frog" R129 with the large sentiment "What Bugs You" R132 

Found some Cosmo Cricket papers - love that zig zag -I colored with Copics - really love that sentiment colored up too! A simple ribbon with a tied on chipboard flourish to embellish. Added some stickles to the all the bug wings for some sparkle.  
I'm excited to be sharing my card today using the super sweet Taking a Break stamp found in High Hopes new release collection of stamps.
Both the Image and background were coloured with Copics,  I added some extra touches on my design, the little bow, eyelashes and tiny little flowers to create a Spring feel to the card.  The pleated ruffle was also handmade and is super easy to create. I've added a quick tutorial on my blog to show how it was made.

 Don't forget to come join in on the challenge!!
