New Year New Sugar Creek Hollow`

Happy Saturday to you! For this mornings post I have a card fro Sugar Creek Hollow. Today we are doing a Sensational Saturday sketch challenge and you are welcome to join!  You can read all about it Here. This is the sketch and I hope you can play along, and there are some great prizes. 

Here is my card:
I used SCH's vintage balloon. It reminded me of one of the first hot air balloons at  a State Fair. The Printed paper is from SU and the colored paper is from a package of paper that I got from Costco. I even add a patch to the hot air balloon. I have also enter this card in My Time to Craft Challenge- 122 Up in the air. Thanks for stopping by and I do hope that you can join us here at SCH. Be sure to stop by the teams blogs to get some more inspiration. They are listed on my side bar.

This is truly a patchwork of colors! Lovely paper ebellie on the front...I want to know how you made that. The newsprint DP is the perfect vintage accent to compliment your lovely balloon.

This is so cute! I love the little patch that you added. The handmade flower is a nice touch too. It all works so well with the old newspaper.
