Primitive Christmas Angel

We have another great challenge for you at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want your vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards to have lots of LAYERS.

We would like to welcome a wonderful new sponsor, Robyn's Fetish, who is generously providing 5 digis from her store to one random winner. The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow.

The Design Team will choose one entry as their Top Pick and the creator of that card will receive a winner's badge to display and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot to be chosen after the last March challenge.

Our designers have created some fun primitive cards for your inspiration this week using images from our lovely sponsor. For the details, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I took this sweet angel from Robyn's Fetish and made a primitive Christmas card. If you haven't tried primitive cards before, don't let the style intimidate you. When I decided to give it a try, I used Google to search for primitive Cards and what I found were simple images and embellishments on cards with a bit of a country feel. Now if I can create primitive, I know you can so I hope you will join us.
