Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday!

Welcome back to a New Year of Sugar Creek Hollow Challenges. We have lots of fun challenges in the works, and it is shaping up to be a great year! 

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch...

...and here is my interpretation of the sketch (with a little poetic license)

Paper: Rustic (DCWV)
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Copics, Distress Ink,
Accessories: Flowers, leaves, charm

 I combined some images in Photoshop to create a scene with a cottage feel.

I added some flowers and a charm for a little extra pizazz. I love the regal elegance of these papers, and how gorgeous is this door?

Everyone is invited to enter a card using this sketch and you are not required to use an image from Sugar Creek Hollow but if you do you will get two entries into the random prize draw.  The winner of that draw will receive a digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on their blog.  Once we reach a minimum of 10 entries, the Design Team will select a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a special badge to display on their blog.  Every month there will be a Guest Designer chosen from the Cards of the Week and that person will be invited to join the Design Team in a challenge.  There are lots of reasons to enter so we can't wait to see your fabulous creations.

Did you know? - - - The proceeds of sales from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe go to provide food, clothing and shelter for those who are less fortunate.  If you don't have any images from the Shoppe yet, check it out and when you buy something to use on your creations you can say that you have helped out too.

So, won't you join us for this week's challenge?

OK...I don't know how you make these colors work so beautifully together, but they do. A purple door....GENIOUS~ Anyway, not only are your papers gorgeous but the floral embellies you have used look very vintage and old. They just make this card.
