November Sketch for Sugar Creek Hollow & Fun Blog Hop
This week we have a sketch challenge for you over at Sugar Creek Hollow. While I have followed the sketch, I have chosen to make a square card. I have heard that it is more expensive to mail a square card in the US but not here in Canada. We are fortunate because our restrictions are based on weight, size and thickness although the base price is higher than in the US.
I was fortunate to receive the lovely crinkly ribbon from the owner of Sugar Creek Hollow (she sells gorgeous colours in her store) and I was so happy that I could use it for this card. I also changed the colour of the image to match the background paper. I think I am going to have include some tools for taking my photos that will help with the colour on my Christmas wish list because that gem in the middle is an iridescent turquoise but the way my light caught it you would think it is almost royal blue. While these may not be traditional Christmas colours, I have included a Christmas message inside and am sending it to one of my friends.
There are lots of fabulous Christmas and Winter sentiments and images available now at Sugar Creek Hollow along with some freebies so hop over, pick something up and enter your creation at the challenge blog. And while we are talking about hopping, we are going to have a little blog hop today - no contests, no prizes, just an fun opportunity to have a look at the wonderful creations by the rest of the design team and pick up some inspiration.
