Wings and Things

 can't see the ballerina charm on the bow?  click the photo to enlarge
Sugar Creek Hollow is one of my favorite challenge sites so I was thrilled to be asked to guest design for them (a big hug and thanks for having me play with you this week).  SCH challenges you to make a project in a vintage, shabby chic or primitve style.  One of the things I love to do to my cards is shabby them up.  I can and do spend hours sponging and pouncing ink on paper. 

This week the theme is "Wing Things" so you can us fairies, angels, birds and butterflies for example.  So I chose to use a fairy teddy bear ballerina.  It's from Teddy Bo and if you visit here regularly you know that the bears are a favorite of mine.  Can you blame me?

don't forget the inside
  Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo "Ballerina Bea"
ink - hp printer; Ranger "Tea Dye", "Vintage Photo", "Scattered Straw" and "Antique Linen"
paper - Wausau "Shell" dp; DCWV "the Garden Party"
miscellaneous - copics; glitzy glitter; silk ribbon; ballerina charm; Recollections pearls; Nesties lacey circle; Sizzex decorative flourish; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
Sugar Creek Hollow - Wing Things
Totally Papercrafts #75 - Girly Girls
Digital Tuesdays #119 - Spellbound (use one or more dies - Spellbinders or otherwise)
Charisma Cardz #28 - It's in the Stars (her wand has a star)
