Wings and Sugar Creek Hollow....


Happy Saturday all.....hope you are having a great weekend!

I am so excited to show you my card for this week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow where in addition to asking you as usual to create in a vintage/shabby chic fashion we are also adding "things with wings" such as butterflies or bees, etc.  
Rick and I had to run an errand out of town this week and while there I just "had" to stop at a couple of craft stores, I am sure you understand. I picked up this beautiful Prima paper "Almanac"  The ribbon and the embossing folder that I used on the black label is also new, lol.

I did a bit of snipping on the fancy tags 2 die that I cut from some of the same paper pad to give it a different look. After cutting and embossing the butterfly and sponging it with distress inks I took the 
same die and fussy cut a piece of the design paper to give a border to my butterfly.

Using the piece of design paper that was left after trimming my front cover and 
black card stockto dress up the inside.
A few gems and my card is complete.


I hope you can join our challenge this week as we love to visit and see your creations.
One random winner will receive a digi of our choice and the Top Pick for this week will
be in the running for a Guest Design spot.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit, hope to by your place soon!
