Going Green at Sugar Creek Hollow!!
Welcome to Saturday and that means it is time for our next challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow where we are going green, as in monochromatic green and if you like it can be a St.Patrick's Day card. The team has some WOW cards for you to get your inspiration from this week, so be sure and stop by the blog. We are also welcoming Debbie Marcinkiewicz as our Guest Designer this week. You can find more of her beautiful work at Simple Pleasures .
This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display on their blog. The Design Team will choose a Top Pick and the creator of that project will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
I am so excited to show you my card this week. I have only stamped twice to create my card and that is on the inside. What I am most excited about is this new technique that I have tried for the first time to make my ruffles and you can find it here . Mine are not anywhere near as beautiful as hers, but I can't wait to try this again. Also my card was created using a beautiful bg from
Ephemera's Vintage Garden which is where I also got the bird quote. I altered the shading just a bit on the bg in Word and added this beautiful image "Butterfly Flowers" from Bugaboo Stamps , I just love the new silhouette images she is designing. This is a black image, but it I also recolored in Word with the light variation of green. I cut part of the bottom off on the bg Easter Girl sheet and used in on the inside. This is where I added a nest that I stamped from a couple of old Stampin' Up sets, Feathered Hope and Seasonal Birds. I hope you enjoy my card and will check out these sites. Believe me it took much longer to place the links in this post than to manipulate my images.
I didn't place a sentiment as of yet, as I am not sure what I will give this card for....I can see Easter, Spring , Happy Birthday or just as a Thinking of You.
I don't know if I said this earlier but the background and bird quote were freebies, be sure and sign up for Debbie's newsletter and you will start getting your own free vintage images.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are finding something to inspire you this week on my blog. We are so happy to see all of the beautiful entries coming in to our blog and hope you will join us in creating a vintage, shabby chic or primitive design this week.
hugs to you all and Happy Weekend!
Be sure and stop by at Love To Create where they are also sponsoring a Monochromatic challenge sponsored by Bugaboo and I am entering this card.
