Your Special Day …

Hello everyone,

The days and weeks are running away with me and I could not believe it is time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow! The theme for this challenge is “I can see clearly” and you therefore have to create a card or any paper crafting project using something like acetate  or clear packaging on your creation. Please remember your project must be made in a vintage or shabby chic style.

I created my card  around a lovely piece of designer paper by Marion Smith Designs – I just love the basket of roses. I stamped a clock face and a sentiment on some clear packaging from a Spellbinders die with black StazOn “Tuxedo Black” ink. I assembled the clock face with mirror tape on the designer paper so that the lovely paper, image and leafy sprig border are still visible. The mirror tape is hidden with paper flowers glued strategically on the dots. I added some butterflies, gemstones and a bow to finish off.
