Happy Saturday and welcome to my Sugar Creek Hollow post, hope you are ready to join in and play along with us this week. We are going by to "School Days:" this week where we want to see something created with that theme in mind in a vintage/shabby chic design.
I found this great image free at Vintage Fan Girl and I hope you will go take a look.
I framed it with a sticker frame from Rebecca Sowers vintage frames adding a couple of Kraft photo tabs.
My sentiment, bg and tab all come from several different Stampin' Up sets, I stamped them with vintage sepia Versafine ink. Do you love the polka dot and note papers....wish I had gotten more those at the show in Charlotte, these pads with lots of colors and patterns and 24 sheets are by Jenni Bowlin and were only a dollar, what a steal!
Adding a star from who knows where that I have had forever and some of my unused and unloved DMC thread I tied a bow around the twill ribbon. The ABC's were silver but I used copper mixatives from Tim Holtz to change the color.
I was talking with Cec, SCH's owner this week and told her that I had struggled with this week's challenge for some reason, ever have those times??? but in the end, I am very happy with my card.
Red and yellow are one of my fave color combos.
Hope you have time this week to play along with us at Sugar Creek Hollow!
Happy Labor Day Weekend.
