Sugar Creek Hollow......

It is Saturday, it is sensational and it is time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to make a MASCULINE VALENTINE card in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive style.

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 gorgeous cards for your inspiration and if you would like the details, just click on their name to be taken directly to their blog.
For my card I have gone very traditional with a red and black theme, the image I used of cupid is available from The Graphics Fairy and was the main inspiration for this card, I love doing collage cards as you might have guessed from previous posts so I used other Valentine images to complete it. The word Amour and the sentiment are from Loast Coast designs, the wings, heart and Love word are from Prima. I just love thos new corner die from Marianne designs called Anja, so I went mad and did all four corners. After putting it altogether I still wasn't happy, you know when you fiddle and replace items but it still has that missing piece.....anyway I looked at it and thought oh well just spritz the whole thing with gold Glimmer mist if its ruined what the heck, so I did and was pleasantly surprised with the result.

Rainbow Lady......have a heart.
Paperplay......Love letters.
