Vintage Sympathy at Sugar Creek Hollow.


Hi all, I want to show you what I played with this week. I found a free digital kit while surfing around and linking from Pinterest and you can find it by going here and be sure to sign up for the free newsletter while there. 
The site is Digital Design Essentials.

I thought it was a perfect pair with my "Lily" image from Robyn's Fetish who is our sponsor this week at Sugar Creek Hollow .   You will want to enter as this week's winner will get 5 images from Robyn of their very own.

Our theme this week for Challenge #20 is to create a vintage/shabby chic Sympathy card. I know they may not be your favorite theme card, but so nice to have on hand when we do need them for someone.

I layered 3 of the papers manipulating them in Word. Love the circle frame around the rose paper. The stitching is another of the digital elements (one which I cannot do in real life) and I printed the flower 3 times, fussy cutting and layering. My beautiful lily image so generously given by Robyn was made using patterns in Gimp photo program which I am experimenting with. I love the way these patterns played off of the other papers. The frame and the sparkles on it are more of the free kit. I distressed and layered on gray and so saffron card stock. The frame is popped up with foam dots and I inserted a piece of the so saffron beside of it which I punched with a Martha Stewart border punch and added pearls. 
I know that there are many of you out there that are so talented in using the digital elements (many on my team) but I had a blast trying something new and I am pleased with the result.


One of you will be chosen by our Design Team as this week's Card of the Week and in addition to your badge, you will be in the running for a Guest spot on our team. So get your vintage/shabby chic hat on and jump in with us this week at Sugar Creek Hollow.

 I am entering this in the challenge at Bloggers Challenge which is Color Splash, black and white with a splash of one color, mine is yellow.

I am also putting in for the challenge "Use a Digi" at Poodle Parlours , which is my beautiful Lily image from Robyns.


Thanks for stopping by......
