The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is all about Spring Flowers and if it would just stays warm we might have some here soon. OK, so there are a few crocuses and pansies around but not much of anything else yet. The garden centres are starting to get stocked up and normally we would be planting annuals in 2 weeks but that may not happen this year.
Please note that starting with this week the challenges at Sugar Creek Hollow will be running every two weeks, which will give us all more time to create and to fit our lives in.
We would like to welcome a new sponsor this week. Heather Hudson who just left our Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team has now come on board as a sponsor with her fabulous collage sheets that you can find here.
For this card I cut one of the hearts from Heather's Blue Hearts with Polka Dots & Pink Roses collage sheet to use as my focal image. The background paper is from the Just Breathe digital kit by Vicki Stegall that I picked up as a freebie ages ago. I added some cheesecloth from my kitchen drawer along with some white corrugated cardboard (The Funkie Junkie Boutique) that has been lightly sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Ink (Ranger).
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I know you don't usually see roses in the spring, at least not where I live, I just love the look of them and of course they matched the image. The butterfly was made with a Martha Stewart punch and has some Recollections pearl stickers added to it. The pink fiber, the pearl and the double hearts were attached to a card I received a couple of years ago so I have recycled them. The filigree corner came from The Funkie Junkie Boutique but I painted it white and then scuffed it up a bit.
