It’s The Tiny Blessings …

Hello friends,

Today is the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. The theme is “How charming” and we would like to see some kind of metal embellishment on your creations. This can be metal charms or any other metal elements such as corners, frames etc. Your project can be a card or any other paper crafting item, such as a scrapbook layout, box, tag, etc. but must be made in a vintage or shabby chic style.

I  used three metal embellishments on my card to accentuate the bird and the lovely sentiment from JustRite stamps. The background papers are from an old Glitz paper pack and the flowers from various Prima ranges and  Kort and Godt. Hope you like my take on the challenge. I would love to see what you come up with.

    Oooo, dis pragtig, Amelia!!! Jou metaalversieringtjies is so skattig, veral die kroontjie op die voetjie se kop. Weereens gee jy soveel aandag aan die mooiste detail. Ek hou baie van jou doily die en die blomme en kant is lieflik!!! Jy is eenvoudig ‘n meester met hierdie ouwereldse shabby chic gevoel wat jy so perfek skep!!! Wel gedaan!!!

    Groete uit George
