Happy holiday weekend everyone and welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.
This week we have a PATRIOTIC challenge
for you. We want you to celebrate your country and its
history and make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card
using the colors of your country as represented by its flag.
Most of the ladies on the Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team are from the
United States so patriotic cards have a red, white and blue theme.
One of our members is Canadian and she has used a classic Canadian icon
and done her card in red and white as those are the colors of the
Canadian flag. We are really looking forward to getting a colorful
history lesson of the countries of our challenge participants.
This week we will reward a random winner with a badge to display on her
blog and a digi of our choice. The Design Team will choose 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.
As you can see the Design Team is very patriotic and has provided some
wonderful inspiration for you. To get details of their cards, just
click on their names and you will be taken directly to their blogs.
For my card, I used red, blue and ivory card stock that I picked up at a stamp show last year from Rubber Cottage. I tried a new multi fold technique that I think I will be trying again very soon, so much fun. My stars and inside sentiment are from an older retired set by Stampin' Up by the name "Liberty for All" and the vintage flag is a freebie that I found online at Magic Moonlight Freebies . You will be sure to find a free goodie there to you liking. I distressed my card with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink. Don't you just love the sentiment "God Bless our Troops" and I pray that he does....it is from Laurie's set at Doodle Pantry in her Patriotic Turtle set. Now hop on over to Sugar Creek Hollow and check the team's beautiful creations. I will be looking for yours this week...have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
