SCH - It's a sensational color combo!

Happy Saturday everyone! This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we have a color combo challenge for you -- black, white, and a splash of another color. I just love red with black and white, so I knew that I had to do this! If you would like to play along with our challenge this week, upload your card and check out the DT samples HERE.

I kept my card simple this week because of the detailing on the digital image! I have few embellishments, but many textures on my card! The background paper is just beautiful, and it comes from a multi-pack of other black and white patterns from My Mind's Eye. The image is called Valentine Vintage Postcard. To add texture, I have used two Cuttlebug embossing folders on the black and white squares, and I used an SU corner punch to make the loops around the red on the image. The final touch was a little bit of white gel pen on the corners for an accent.

We hope that you will play along with us this week! Remember that 100% of the proceeds of Sugar Creek Hollow stamps go to support people in need! Have a blessed day!

Nancy, this is so beautiful. I love red with B&W as well. It was a perfect choice for the bird. It looks very pretty in red. You've framed the post card beautifully as well. What a lovely card.

Beautiful card, Nancy! I love how that red bird pops and how fancy the corners look with that punch. :) I'm sure I have one of those somewhere too!
