Sugar Creek Hollow Color Challenge for October



I just LOVE this color combo!!  Joseline chose Early Espresso (dark brown), River Rock (sand/tan) and Baja Breeze (bluish-green) for our color combo this month.   I only had the Baja Breeze in my paper stash but I think I came pretty close.  I decided to use the Bad Hair Day Snowman and the Merry Christmas sentiment for this challenge.  Check out the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe if you're interested in this little cutie!  I colored it with my copic markers trying to match the papers as closely as possible.  I changed the Merry Christmas phrase from black to brown so that it would coordinate with this color scheme.  

Want to play along with this color challenge?  You could win a free digital stamp of your choice from Sugar Creek Hollow.  Just click here to see what the design team has created and enter your own card!  I can't wait  to see what you create!



Don't forget to check out all of the other designers and see what they've created.  Try to leave comments too.  It means so much to people to know that people are being inspired by their work.  I know I always try to tell someone when I like something they've done!  You can find links to all of the SCH designers on my right side bar.  I know they'd love to hear from you!

I've also entered this card in the Winter Wonderland "make it vintage" challenge.
