French Postcard

Wow, it's Saturday already and we have a sensational color challenge for you this week at Sugar Creek Hollow. We want you to use PURPLE, KRAFT & BLACK when you create your vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired card or other paper-crafted project.  Don't forget - all three colors must appear on your project.  Black is black but purple and kraft come in a variety of shades so it will be fun to see how creative you can be.

Our random winner will receive a badge to display and a digi of our choice.  The Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and that creator will receive a badge to display but will also be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team had fun creating with these colors and have lots of inspiration for you.  If you want more details about their cards, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I have used an image from one of my favourite digi stamp shops, Isabella's Sketchbook. I was on Isabella's Design Team before she had to shut her challenge blog down for personal reasons so it is so exciting to see that she is drawing and when she releases something new, I can't wait to buy it.  Many of her wonderful images are vintage inspired and I love them.  This card also has some lovely gifts from a couple of my lovely Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team members.  They are not only talented, they are so generous.

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

Sew Many Cards - Punch It
Simply Create  - Wings
Totally Papercrafts - Die Cuts or Punches
Stampin B's - Use a Border Punch
My Mum's Craft Shop - Seeing Spots
