Fabulous Friday Farewell

*sigh*  Today is my last Fabulous Friday challenge with the Sugar Creek Hollow design team.  What a wonderful group of supportive christian women!  Each one of them has my gratitude and respect for the work they have done on this team over the last 6 months.  Tracy is an amazing creative force to be reckoned with and with Joseline did a most excellent job with this team.  Thank-you ladies!  It's been a blessing.

Today's Fabulous Friday challenge is to make a card using no designer paper.  Um... Excuse me?  Is that possible?!!!  Holy shamolies!!!  I've seen other projects done without designer paper and some have been quite spectacular.  To date, I haven't had much success when I've tried to do a card sans dp.

However, I think I'm happy with this one;


I figured I'd have the best success if I just didn't fiddle faddle with colour either.  Me likey!  It seems I'm on a bit of an elegant, romantic kick right now, and I'm quite tickled about it.  This would also work well as a wedding card or first communion/baptism card by simply changing the sentiment.  I used the Sugar Creek Hollow Decorative Cross and With Sympathy sentiment

My idea for this card came from a wonderful tutorial Yvonne Hagane did as Spellbinders International Guest Designer.  I am constantly in awe of this woman's creativity and I love the amazing, beautiful projects she creates.  I used the following spellbinder nestabilities dies for this card;  Labels 10, fancy tags, flower creations, petite ovals, and on the vine borderabilities die.

My fellow Sugar Creek Hollow design team members have done wonderful projects for today's challenge and I would invite you to take a peek at their work;

stamps; decorative cross, with sympathy (sugar creek hollow)
paper; coconut swirl (bazzill)
accessories;  Labels 10, flower creations, petite ovals, fancy tags, on the vine borderabilities die (spellbinders), diamond stickles (ranger), rhinestone brads (making memories)

Holy moly, this is drop dead gorgeous, Loretta! I have never tried a shaped card, but you have really inspired me to give it a try. I love the crisp white and your beautiful embellies. I have so enjoyed being on DTs with you over the past 9 months and will try to keep up with you in my reader. All the best!
