High Hopes Guest Designer Card

This week, I have the honour of being a guest designer at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. The challenge is Anything High Hopes. For this card I inked up Lenny's Love Me Nots - he makes me smile. 

I didn't do a "standard" card layout for this one ( the instructions are in the Spring 2015 issue of Card Maker Magazine).

I had a few challenges with this card - 1. to not reach into my embellishment drawers and 2. to get a good photo! 

The piece the actual "picture" is on opens to the right (there is a "natural" photo below) so getting a good picture was a challenge.  

For the card itself, I coloured the background (sky & grass) with chalk pencils and then "softened" the colours using a piece of paper towel and doodled the edge around the photo. 

I didn't finish the inside of this one yet because I'm not sure what occasion I will use it for - I do feel it could be used for just about anything but since the inside of this card is "finished" there is a photo below of that as well.

Here is a picture with the front closed "flat"..........

The Inside

And the card front as it "naturally" sits
