High Hopes challenge #24

I finally got around to squeezing in another challenge! I love the High Hopes images and the challenges are great so I try to play whenever I can. This week the challenge was to use creative borders.
The Aussie is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth cardstock. The leaves are as well and they are cut out and popped up around the matted image with some hemp as my border. I distressed the edges of the mat under the image and the sentiment and I stamped a jungle background on the kraft paper for a little added detail. All stamps are from High Hopes and they are so much fun to color. I really enjoyed making this card. Thanks for visiting!
