Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday and happy long weekend! It's so nice knowing we have an extra day off - I can use the downtime to catch up on things around the house and in my craft room! So let's start the weekend off with a little challenge beginning with Sugar Creek Hollow!
Today there's another new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow!  We're challenging you to create a shaped card - something other than a square or rectangle.  Now I have a little explaining to do!  In the rush of busy week, I simply forgot that angle and did a square card so don't follow my example for the challenge!  Instead create a card in a circle or some other creative shape and remember to create in vintage, shabby chic or primitive style. And hooray we have a sponsor for this challenge too and a great prize for the winner!
We are so lucky to be sponsored by PriscillaStyles this week! One lucky randomly selected winner of the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week will win a $10 gift certificate to the PriscillaStyles Store. Thanks Priscilla for the wonderful prize!

Here's a closeup of my card. Priscilla so graciously provided some of her wonderful images for the DT to create with this week - thanks Priscilla!  This image is "Vintage Floral Bicycle" and you can find it in the PriscillaStyles Store HERE.  I embellished those wonderful flowers with pearls to draw more attention to the focal image. I also used Spellbinders Labels #16 and the Decorative Window Scene die exclusively available at Heartfelt Creations to frame the image on my card.

For the card layout, I used the sketch at Midnight Madness MMSC105 going with the clean and simple version. I'm entering my card in their challenge this week.

Edited to add:  This card won a "Remarkables" award at Midnight Madness!  YAY!

Now, stop on by the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog and see the creative inspiration that my DT team mates are providing this week. You don't want to miss that!

Thanks for stopping by today!
