Sugar Creek Hollow Guest Designer

I think this is called 'bragging rights'... I have the privilege of being the guest designer this week at Sugar Creek Hollow... what an honor to participate and to also catch up with some blog friends that I haven't been in touch with for a while. 

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to use vellum on our card or paper project and the style can be vintage, shabby chic or even primitive and distressed. The more I play in this style of card making the more I enjoy it... as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

So, after a bit of playing around with lots of different media, here's what I created... I would say it's rather shabby-chic!

There isn't one speck of colored pencils or markers... not one blessed thing to color up and I loved it...what a great change for me.

I used the Christmas Tree die cut from Sizzix, covered the trees with liquid snow and covered that with glitter and pearls. Well, I covered everything with glitter.. there's glitter all over my craft grotto.. in the bathroom, in my bedding, in my shoes and stuck to my skin... even after two days and three showers. Go figure!! Suddenly I remembered why I don't use glitter often.  God help the lucky person who gets this as their Christmas card... they will be 'blessed' with glitter as well.

Come join us in the challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow... This week, one lucky random winner will receive a digi along with the winner's badge to display on their blog You might even have the winning entry that becomes "The Card Of The Week" and then later a chance at the guest designer spot. That's a lot of chances at winning something!

That is so funny! I know how you feel about gets everywhere.
I just love how this card turned out, the trees look so lovely. I do believe I have this die cut and will have to give it a try, end up with glitter everywhere. SO glad you could join the DT this month in the vellum challenge.
Hugs, Heide

Really beautiful card Peggy and your glitter everywhere struck a chord here as I once taught a class using it and went out afterwards. Everyone kept staring at me and when I got back to the shop I discovered I had glitter all over my face!!!
