Sugar Creek Hollow - A Sketch and a Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday!

It's the first Saturday of the month and time for another Sugar Creek Hollow Blog Hop! If you have arrived from Donna's blog, you are on the right track. For our blog hop today, we were asked to use this sketch...

 ...and here is my card...

Paper: SU! (retired), Vellum
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Distress Ink
Accessories: Sewing machine, Lace, Sizzix snowflake die, Branch Punch (MS), Scallop Circle (SU!), Swarovski Crystals

This beautiful Christmas Star is available at Sugar Creek Hollow.

I was trying to find just the right snowflake, but did not have just that right punch. I figured out how to create my own snowflakes with my branch punch. I added some sparkle with Swarovski crystals.

Well, now it is time to move on to Ms. Plum's Place  If you have arrived at my blog first, you will want to start at the beginning and visit all of the blogs. The cards are amazing! Here is the order of our blog hop.

Julie  - You are Here

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Your lovely comments are always appreciated!

Beautiful card Julie! Aren't you clever using the branch punch to create snowflakes-I love that idea and am throwing away all my snowflake punches now! These are such pretty, soothing colors you've used and the distressing all over is the perfect vintage touch. So very pretty!

This is so soft and pretty with those gorgeous papers you have used. How resourceful of you to use your branch punch to make your snowflakes.

I was trying to figure out what punch you've used for your snowflakes and then I read that you used your fern punch! Super created and I love that you used untraditional Christmas colors. Fantastic job Julie!

Hugs to you and happy Monday!
