Sensational Saturday Challenge

Hope you're having a sensational Saturday!  This week Sugar Creek Hollow would love to see your cards created using a handmade flower.  Here is the card I created:
I chose  "Vined Cross".  I colored the area around the cross with a Copic marker and then adhered to a die cut made with the Heartfelt Creations/Spellbinders "Decorative Oval Window".   I used Pink Paislee's "Queen Bee" design papers which has gorgeous yellows.  I made my flowers from the same papers with a Sizzix die and sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks.  For the swirls around my flowers I used a  Marianne's Creatables die.

Sugar Creek Hollow is celebrating their one year anniversary this month!  You will see wonderful new cards by our designers and each of them has candy for one lucky winner who comes to comment during the hop as well as a grand prize winner from the challenge blog comments.   The winner of the blog candy will be drawn on March 31st. 

I'd like to extend a big WELCOME to  LANEY, who is the first Guest Designer to be chosen from our Cards of the Week.

Visit the SCH Blog to get instructions on how to enter this week's challenge and while you're there, please take a look at the Design Team's cards.  You can also get instructions on how to win a free digital image and become a guest designer!
