Sensational Saturdays at Sugar Creek Hollow

Saturdays are always sensational at Sugar Creek Hollow!  That's when the design team creates new cards to share with you for inspiration.  This week the design team's challenge was a color combo using:
Christmas Angel
I love this Christmas Angel, she is such a gorgeous digi!  I initially colored my image in Photoshop before I printed it out so I would have the pink already colored. I then went over the wings with Shimmerz "Candlelight" and a gold Atyou Spica marker.  I painted around my angel with Twinkling H20s.  The layer underneath my image was embossed with snowflakes and then sponged with SU Craft Whisper White.  The Spellbinder's frame is laced with an organza ribbon.  There is design paper underneath if you look close enough, Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding!  I added Prima roses and an EK Success butterfly border over my lace trim.  This was a real challenge for me using the color combo, I guess I can't think beyond traditional Christmas colors this time of the year.


Please join us for our sketch challenge!  We would love for you to play along,  just make your creation using the color combo and link it up with Mr. Linky HERE

I've listed our DT members below and hope you will visit, we love to hear from you!  

Thanks for visiting and have a sensational Saturday!

Marsha, your cards tell such a story with all the elements you incorporate. I also struggled with this color challenge but I am telling you....I would never have known it for you. My favorite element this week is the ribbon laced through the little hints of flowers. Over the top and just an all around lovely art piece.
