High Hopes on Friday

There's a brilliant sketch on Tracy's DietoDiefor blog and there's a great prize of the Rain and Shine Miss Anya girls, the sketch is from Dawn who sketches for Papertake Weekly but I made it more difficult by deciding to use very busy paper and on a man's card too. It looks a bit plain without loads of flowers etc but my Dad will be happy with it. The tractor is High Hopes and I've 3d some of it, I was asked how I 3d whether I used sticky pads or glue, I first emboss the back of all the 3d elements, so they don't look flat and I use silcone glue so that I can alter the height. Papers are BG cupcake and yes I know that sentiment is Simon Says Stamps but I love how it fits inside the punches.
I love the sketch on CPS 117 but I couldn't get anything to work, so used the sentiment I wanted to use and worked backwards till I was happy. I made the flat bow so it would fit in the small slot for normal post. The papers are scraps of Daisy Bucket so I can enter it into the Papertake Weekly challenge.
There's some fabulous blog candy arounded at the moment, here's a couple, one from Sue


Another from Nikki

Debby,
When you say "emboss" the back of the pieces, you mean with embossing powder? I just love this card! Is that tractor stamp still available at HH?

Blessings,
Shannon
