Sugar Creek Hollow Sketch Challenge

It's another sensational Saturday and that means a new challenge starts today at Sugar Creek Hollow. We've been getting some amazing entries in our challenges over the past couple weeks and appreciate so much those that are participating. If you're new to Sugar Creek Hollow, I welcome you to join our challenges. A new challenge is posted every Saturday at the Sugar Creek Hollow blog.

This week it's a sketch challenge. We'd love it if you created a card using this sketch and play along in our challenge this week. We will choose one random winner, who will receive a free digi of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and a badge to display on your blog. If you use a Sugar Creek Hollow image you will get two entries in the random draw. Just follow the instructions at the Sugar Creek Hollow blog and join us in the weekly fun!

Also each week, the Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will get a badge to display. One overall winner will be chosen each month from the Cards of the Week. That person will be invited to be a Guest Designer and participate in the next challenge. An image will be provided to them to work with. The Card of the Week prize will be given when we have a minimum of 10 entries.

I used a new image from Sugar Creek Hollow on my challenge card called "Love You Lady" created by Sugar Creek Hollow's owner, Tracy Vinson. This darling vintage ladybug is a perfect all occasion digi that is a bit whimsical too. She's colored with Copic markers and Basic Grey's "Olivia" collection papers are used here as well. The sparkly chipboard flourishes are from Making Memories. Spellbinder's circles and deckled rectangle Nesties are the die cuts I used along with "Old Paper" distress inks from Tim Holtz.

Now visit the Sugar Creek Hollow blog for more inspiration from the talented Design Team - you definitely don't want to miss that! I hope to see your creation in the gallery this week. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my gosh, Sharon, this is so stinkin' cute! I love that little but, and you have created the perfect layout to really make her pop off the page. Super!

Ooh Sharon, this is just the most beautiful ladybug! Love your coloring and what great papers you chose - also both the doily and the tulle ornaments are fabulous!

How lovely!!! Your card is so identical to the sketch...LOVE IT. I did not have any scrolls so I had to improvise..haha. You have such a way with softer colors and I am envious. I dispise using pastels...I try...but it does not always turn out. Any way, your scrolls kind of mimic a lady bug leg I think. Well done!
