Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow!

Saturdays are always sensational because that's when I have a new card to show you with a gorgeous Sugar Creek Hollow image.  This week's challenge is to create a card using embossing.  I was able to use my new Stampin Up Tulip Embossing folder and this fabulous Sweet Pea image designed by Tracy:
Sweet Pea
I cut my design paper to fit inside the embossed tulip border and paired my stamp with an almost matching Spellbinder's Labels 17 die. I chose pink gingham paper from my stash and  green gingham ribbon to match my pink and green cardstock.  I sponged my DP and image with distress ink and used Copics for coloring.

Thanks for visiting!
Sugar Creek Nugget:
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate
and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and
many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow
the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)
