Blooming Friends

                            Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!

Spring finally seems to be here although we did have a chance of wet snow forecast for one morning this week! 

I am sharing "Blooming Friends" from the High Hopes Spring 2016 Collection. This cutie could be used for so many occasions - Birthday, Mother's Day, Hello...and so many more. I have chosen not to include a sentiment on this one until I have an occasion to use it for. 

I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I used the next size up (die) and cut the patterned paper to go behind my image. The banners were cut with fishtail banner dies. A banner with a butterfly, some flowers and glitter gumdrops are the finishing touches for my card. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the butterfly wings and the flower centres for a little bit of bling.
