Happy Friday!

 I'm here with a new card and my first ever submission to
 Sugar Creek Hollow.
It definitely won't be my last!

I was pointed in the direction of
 Sugar Creek Hollow
 by some fabulous fellow card makers.

 They hold weekly challenges and invite anyone who loves this style to participate.

Their style is vintage, shabby, and primitive and I AM LOVING IT!

This week's challenge is Stripes & Spots and here is what I came up with :

Forgive the photo quality, it's a rainy day here in sunny south Florida!

The stamps are Cloud9 Design.
They just screamed "vintage" to me, so into my shopping basket they went.

I also made my very first stick pin - isn't it gorgeous? 
I may or may not have raided my daughter's bead collection for those beads.
(She has a bajillion of them, so I'm sure she won't mind.)

Thanks for taking a look at my card, 
and make sure to check out Sugar Creek Hollow 
if these challenges sound like fun to you!

(All papers used are DCWV.)
