Heading South....


Not me, just my card.....our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollowis to head south, that is to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card with a beach theme.

I have had these free vintage images and decided that this is the direction that I wanted to go with my card. The beautiful ocean scene is from Victorian Vignettes and the music piece was found on The Graphics Fairy . I simply layered these two on top of each other and then hand cut, afterwards distressing and sponging with distress inks. I have had this double sided ribbon for ages and it matches the hues in the image perfectly. The silver charm and sequin shells were a gift ages ago from Tracy, thanks so much.

One random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

I hope this sounds like a challenge you would love to take this week and you will start thinking about those beautiful days by the ocean and come up with your very own creation to show us at Sugar Creek Hollow, Please be sure to stop by to see what the rest of the team has for you.

Here's hoping you are having a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!
