Lovin' That Man o' Mine

Hmmm... that title is from "Porgy and Bess".. one of the most wonderful Gershwin Broadway shows ever. First introduced in 1935.. and you can read even more here if you are so inclined.
It's Saturday, it's sensational and it's time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. 
This week our theme is to create a MASCULINE VALENTINE card in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive style. There's only three more days until 'that' big day.
One very lucky random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

And, here's my contribution to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week...

I took a huge departure from traditional colors. The only tiny bit of red (Red Riding Hood from SU) I used for the sentiment on the ticket. The heart is made from a wool scrap (camel/gray houndstooth check) and in addition to a few embossing folders, a bit of corrugated cardboard, and some doo-dads, I used one of my favs and very-well used... the Sizzix Primitive Hearts die. The papers were aged it all with Ranger Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. I love just pulling things together like this to create a unqiue collage type of card... in keeping with theme at Sugar Creek Hollow - shabby, vintage, antique, primitive.

Our Design Team has created gorgeous cards for your inspiration and I would love if you would check out all of their lovelies.... Just click on these names to be taken directly to the blogs of my teammates...Tracy Cec Patti  Renee Linda, and  Daniele
