oh so Pretty in Pink....




Yummy, I love pink!! 

That is our challenge to you this week at Sugar Creek Hollow where as always we ask you to create something in the vintage/shabby chic theme.
I know some of you say, I don't do vintage but I wish you would give it a try.
It is easier than you think and we would love to see you join in our challenges.

I used the image "Peonies in a vase" that is from Beccy's Place where I have found many lovely images.   Be sure and check her blog,
After coloring the image I ran it through the Stampin' Up lattice embossing
 folder. I used some of my favorite papers and stamps to create a background.
Don't you love that trim with the pearls, more of my score a while back at a local fabric outlet.

The rest of our team has created some beautiful cards for you this week, 
be sure to stop by SCH and follow the links to their blogs.

Then I hope you will think pink and join us this week.

Have a wonderful Saturday my friends, hope you are doing 
something you enjoy.
See you soon.

I am entering my card into the September challenge at Beccy's Place where the only requirement is to use one of her images.

Card Details:
Paper: SU chocolate, My Mind's Eye Madison Ave
Ink: Distress Ink , Spectrum Noir markers
Other:Pearl trim, SU stamps, Pink Paislee stamps, Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval die

I hope all is welll in your part of the world.
We miss you, Nancy

Hello Patti, Looks like you have been very busy! I have been enjoying your creations but most of all missing you. Hope you are doing well! So glad I can stop by once in a while and catch up. Hope you are enjoying the last of summer. We are having a gorgeous week and then I am afraid that the rains may be coming! Not looking forward to that! I never get enough of summer!
Hugs, Judi
