Non-Tradional Valentine

It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and today we want you to make a Non-Traditional Valentine.  We want to see non-traditional colours - no red or pink.

Each week we will choose one random winner, who will receive a free digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on your blog.  If you use a Sugar Creek Hollow image you will get two entries in the random draw.  Just follow the instructions on the sidebar to link your second entry.

Each week the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will get a badge to display.  One overall winner will be chosen each month from the Cards of the Week.  That person will be invited to be a Guest Designer and participate in the next challenge.  An image will be provided to them to work with.  The Card of the Week prize will be awarded once we reach a minimum of 10 entries.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cardnadfairy's Digi Days -Romance
Card Makin' Mamas -Valentine
Crafty Catz  - Valentine/Love
