Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.. This week we have a color challenge for you. We want you to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards featuring CREAM, BLUE & BROWN.

One 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.

Our Design Team has created wonderful cards with this color scheme to inspire you. If you want the details on their cards, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I have had this gorgeous piece of Anna Griffin paper in my stash for about 3 years and I thought was a perfect time to use it although I have no idea why I didn't use it before. I also decided this was a great opportunity to use my new square Fleur-de-Lis Spelllbinders Nestabilities and do some layering. I love the clean elegant look of this card.
