Naturally Neutral

Welcome to Saturday and another sensational one at Sugar Creek Hollow.  This week our challenge is all about NEUTRALS.  We want you to create a vintage, primitive or shabby chic card or other paper-crafted project in neutral colors, preferably off-white, kraft or gray.  You may use a bit of color in your vintage style image but nowhere else on your creation.

This should be a very easy challenge because there are so many gorgeous neutral papers and embellishments available online and in the craft stores now and the best part is that so many of them are of a vintage style.

We will give one random winner a digi of our choice and a badge to display.  In addition the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our designers have created some wonderful inspiration for you and if you would like to see the details, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.
