- Sugar Creek Hollow's challenge is to use the theme 'Wing Things', fitting into the shabby, vintage or primative styles, and
- Card Patterns sketch # 124 shown here . . .
For my card, I turned the sketch to the right 1/4 turn. Here is my card based on the two challenges . . .
Before I share my supply list, I want to tell you about a few bargains I used in making this card! First up, the white brads (under the pink pearls), the blue felt and pink ribbon were purchased from Anna Griffin a few weeks ago when she had her warehouse sale. Almost everything I bought (including the set of 10 fancy brads, and the ribbon cards) were only $1 each! Also, the patterned papers I used are from a Donna Dewberry 'paintable paper' kit that I purchased at a yard sale. Apparently the lady had purchased five (yes, I said 5) of the kits, and had used some elements, but had the better part of 4 of the kits, and all of three of the kits in a box. There was no price on the box, and when I asked she only wanted $1 for everything! I love me some scrapbooking bargains!!!

Tips and Hints:
- For the three circles at the bottom of the card, I used three Anna Griffin brads that were white, floral shapes. They did not show up the way I wanted them to, so I coated them with white glue and dipped them into some white glitter and allowed them to dry before gluing on the pink pearls. I removed the brads from the back with some needle nose pliers and glued them to the card. The glitter I used was a combination of several different glitters that I had combined a while back because I only had a tiny bit of each, so I can't tell you what brand it is, but I love that it almost perfectly matched the glitter on the Prima flower!
And that is my card for two challenges! I think it will make a lovely card for someone who just found out they are expecting a baby or, since there are 3 eggs, maybe even triplets! I have several other cards I need to get posted, so please comeback soon. Blessings, Becky!!!
