Sugar Creek Hollow Color Challenge

This was a fun card to make.  Sugar Creek Hollow has the best vintage stamps!  Since my colors were chosen for me in the design team challenge my next step was to choose which Sugar Creek Hollow images I wanted to use. I knew immediately that I wanted to emboss a lot of the paper to mimic fabric to go along with the dressmaker theme.   The hat and scissors were printed on ivory paper.  The dressmakers form was printed on linen designer paper.  I have the hat popped up on dimensional foam tape and I decided to throw on a mini clothes pin at the last second holding some "cloth scraps".  Okay, they're really just some fibers that I cut up but it feels like a real seamstress shop doesn't it?  At the bottom I used a strip of sequins. 

Be sure to check out all of the beautiful creations from the other design team members!  They're all over at the right side bar of my blog.  There are some wonderful cards to see and be inspired by.
