Vellum for Sugar Creek Hollow

It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and this week our challenge to you is to create a card or other paper crafted project featuring VELLUM. We would love to see how you use vellum in your project but remember that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge blog so your entry must be in one of those styles.

This week you could be a random winner and receive a digi of our choice along with a badge to display on your blog or the Design Team might choose your entry as Card of the Week and if they do, you will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our designers have used vellum in a number of ways on their cards so you can see how versatile it can be and be inspired.

This week we are welcoming Peggy Marsh (a.k.a. The Wired Angel) as Guest Designer and she has created a beauty for you. Peggy was selected from the August Cards of the Week winners.

I started with gold card stock and then created a gorgeous white vellum poinsettia for my card. It is teamed with a fabulous vintage Santa image, some pretty damask paper and a smart satin bow. It is topped of with a fancy ticket sentiment. I know I have broken my own rule about my Christmas cards being flat this year but flat was getting boring so this one will be a hand it out card. I will go back to flat tomorrow :)

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

Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
