Sugar Creek Hollow.....


Afternoon peeps hope you are having a nice relaxing start to the weekend, busy day today at work for me with Mothers Day tomorrow, in theory we should all be able to have a lie in, cup of tea/breakfast in bed, pampered all day with our feet up ......I know its a dream....lol, Well hopefully you'll get some crafting time to join in with our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow. We have a gorgeous photo to inspire you to create a vintage or shabby chic project using elements or colours from the photo.


I created the background using Pan Pastels in turquoise and purple through a mask from Crafty Individuals, I then used a shimmer paste from Imagination Crafts with mask on still to get the lovely glittery patteren.
I then made the centre shaker piece with beads in using the new Royal Bird from CI 378, stamped on  a piece of background paper from the Springtime book.
For the main flowers I used the element stamp CI 206. I cut into the centre of three of the petals and then glued the petals behind to create more dimension.

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous. It is quite Victorian looking with the muted purples and greens. The image is lovely, and the added details of gold just bring everything together so beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely card with us this week at Card Crafter's Circle.
