High Hopes

So the challenge on High Hopes this week is to make something 3d like a gift bag or box. Last week Lacey had a tutorial on how to make this basket gift box and I thought it would be ideal to make for this challenge. So using this cute puddy cat stamps and some matching flower stamp I'm really pleased how it turned out, but being on an diet I didn't dare buy any sweeties to put inside.
Here's a close up of the puddy cat isn't she cute and her identical twin sister is on the back. The papers are Basic Grey and I've used the Martha Stewart doily punch for the lace trim round the circle mat and the handle. The flowers are the retro flower punch from EK success but I've used a pair of deckle scissor to chop the tops off to match the flower stamp.
I had to cut down the flower image so it would fit.
This will be my last High Hopes post as a Diva, I'm afraid that I've stepped down and all the Divas have sent me such supportive and wonderful messages. It's been an absolutely wonderful being a HH Diva and I adore the amazing stamps that Tina makes. So although it may be my last post as a Diva it won't be my last High Hopes card.
