SCH Sensational Harvest Blessings

Our challenge this week was to use a digi that hadn't been used, so I chose to use Blue Plate Special image from Sugar Creek Hollow. I loved the image the minute I saw it, but I hadn't gotten around to using it. When I was planning this week's card, I got the idea of putting the plates on sparkly chargers, then putting them on a table runner. I made the table runner by adding lace to the edges and running the paper through the Cuttlebug to give it some texture. The sentiment is also from Sugar Creek Hollow.

Tracy has added the most exquisite new image to the store. I had already made my card for this week, but this drawing of the baby Jesus in the manger is awe-inspiring. Check it out HERE.

Card Details:
Paper: Night of Navy and shimmery white cardstock by Stampin' Up; Shimmer blue by unknown
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder; lace trim; SU circle punches

Nancy this is so pretty. I have an entire wall in my music room dedicated to nothing but blue willow plates and platters. I still love it when I go in there and look at them. Your card reminds me of that. The embossing on the blue paper is an exuisite touch. Lovely!!!

Lovely Nancy! When I was growing up, our living room was decorated in blue and white with lots of pattern pieces like these plates as decorations on the wall. You just can't beat the freshness of blue and white or your fresh take on a Thanksgiving card with these images and colors. Beautifully done Nancy!
Hugs,
