Sugar Creek Hollow Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!

This week, Sugar Creek Hollow presented us with a sketch challenge. We are to use this sketch with one of the new Fall or Winter digis. Here is the sketch...



...and here is my card...


I reversed the sketch for my card because I wanted to draw the focus back to the middle of the card rather than off the card.
Paper: DCWV (textured cardstock and striped paper), other from stash
Accessories:  Country Crinkle ribbon, Prima Flowers, Pearls, Corner Punch (SU!), Stickles, Oak leaf and branch punches


I colored my image with Copics and used Distress Ink to add color to the background. I used my Copics Airbrush System to add color to a white flower, changing it to light brown (the bottom flower). I used Stickles to add a little sparkle to the stain glass windows. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

I love the sparkle on the windows. Stain glass is one of my favorite things next to stamping!

Very pretty. I like the stitching and also the sparkle on the windows. I also like how the ribbon coordinates and makes the windows pop even more.
