Welcome to Saturday and another sensational one at Sugar Creek
Hollow. This week our challenge is all about NEUTRALS. We want you to create
a vintage, primitive or shabby chic card or other paper-crafted project
in neutral colors, preferably off-white, Kraft or gray. You may

I will admit that I struggled just a bit with this one as I didn't realize how much black and brown that I use....Love the grays and ended up using two of them from Stampin' Up and finding a lovely dp from K&Co's paper pack "Julianne", a piece of Kraft colored text paper that I then stamped with Tim Holtz distress ink in pumice stone using SU's set "Close as a Memory" floral. I am really happy with this look and will be using it again. One of my other faves is this vintage lace that I have from McMahon Five. I found a pack of these wonderful heart charms while away with my niece the other weekend and tied it with embroidery floss to the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis frame.
We will give one random winner a digi of our choice and a badge to
display. In addition the Design Team will choose a Card of the
Week and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the
running for a Guest Designer spot.
