Ruffled Flower Card

Welcome to Sugar Creek Hollow and another Sensational Saturday.  This week we are challenging you to make SHAPED CARDS.  Now everyone will tell you a square or a rectangle is a shape and they are correct but we want you to stretch your creativity and to try making cards in lots of other shapes.  We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired challenge blog so lets see your shaped cards in one of those styles.  And one other reminder - our challenges go live on Saturday morning at 8:00 am EST so please do not link to a post prior to that day and time.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, "priscillastyles" Store.  The random winner will receive $10 worth of digis of their choice from "priscillastyles" Store and a Sugar Creek Hollow winner's badge to display on her blog.

The Design Team will also choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team has created some wonderful cards for your inspiration using images from "priscillastyles" Store. I have used the floral bicycle, which can be found in the store here.

For my shape, I used a flower image from the Mother's Bouquet cartridge from Cricut and created a card from it using Design Studio.

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

AI Factory - Pretty in Pick
Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything Goes
Outlawz - POM - Anything Goes
Paper Play - Blossoms and Blooms
Sassy Studio Designs - Pearls & Lace
Southern Girls - Lace & Pearls
