MMSC75 with Sugar Creek Hollow



Today I have another card made for a challenge. This one is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC75.   I really like this layout a lot.  I love the clean lines.  There's a lot going on yet it's not busy at all.  I chose a beautiful sentiment from Sugar Creek Hollow for my main image.  Despite all of the different layers this card went together pretty quick.  The sentiment you see is actually black when you purchase it but I used my free Gimp software to change the color.  I recently was asked to do a video tutorial for changing the color but I'm not terribly proficient with our camcorder plus I can't stand to hear my own voice.  I will however do a tutorial that hopefully will be helpful so check back here tomorrow if you want to learn how to change the colors of your digis.  It's really simple and gives you so many more options.  This would have looked nice if I'd printed it in B & W but doesn't it just tie the whole card together to have it in red?

Paper:  Green dots are by K&Co. Marcella stack
            Holly & darker green paper from Brenda Walton Evergreen mat pad
            Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi card stock
