Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  This week we have a PATRIOTIC challenge for you.  We want you to celebrate your country and its history and make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card using the colors of your country as represented by its flag.

Most of the ladies on the Sugar Creek Hollow Design Team are from the United States so patriotic cards have a red, white and blue theme.  One of our members is Canadian and she has used a classic Canadian icon and used red and white as those are the colors of the Canadian flag.  We are really looking forward to getting a colorful history lesson of the countries of our challenge participants.

Here is my card for this week using a primitive image from Victorian Angel entitled "Patriotic Garden Tools":
I used Webster's Pages design paper and added lace, buttons, baker's twine and gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This week we will reward a random winner with a badge to display on her/his blog and a digi of our choice.  The Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a badge to displayand will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

As you can see, our Design Team is very patriotic and they have  provided some wonderful inspiration for you on their blogs.  Just click on their names in my sidebar to see their creations. 

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your encouragement and support and I love reading your comments!
