Happy Saturday morning and Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  This week our challenge is all about embellishments - HAND MADE PAPER FLOWERS, VINTAGE LACE & BLING.

We want you to use all of these embellishments on your card or other paper-crafted creation. If you don't have truly vintage lace, just use something that has the appearance of being old. Don't forget that our challenges are for your vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired projects.  So rummage through your craft stash and challenge yourself to try your hand at one of these styles using the theme for this week.  We can't wait for you to show us what you come up with.

We will be choosing a random winner, who will receive a winner's badge to display and a digi of our choice. The Design Team will also select a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

For my card this week, I used a piece of dp given as a freebie at Create with TLC and an image from Doodle Pantry . My french postcard is a freebie find online. I fell in love with this image and loved using some offray ruffled ribbon as well as some lace. I just love layering all of these elements. My mistake and I cannot fix it now is that my flower is mulberry paper but not handmade, sorry for the mix up on the challenge requirements....but do as they say not as I do, lol. 

As they always do, our Design Team has created some gorgeous cards for your inspiration. So check out the challenge blog and if you want to get the details, just click on their name and you will be taken right to their blog.
Be sure and take the time in your busy schedules to play along with us this week....I will look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.
Have a happy, safe weekend!
