Sugar Creek Hollow Week #16

Welcome to another fun week at

This week we ask that you us Lots of Embellishments on your 
Vintage, Shabby Chic or Primitive projects.
Here is my inspiration piece below.
I used some fabulous Glitz patterned paper and Images from Gecko Galz.
If you want some Fabulous need to go to 
Pro 31 Designs!!  I just created this beauty using some new items I bought from Esmeralda at Pro 31 Designs.  She threw in the ivory Drop beaded trim for free :0)
The Vintage white frame, is from the Frames Collection by Gecko Galz.  The Two vintage ladies image is from the monthly free digital collage sheets I receive with the Gecko Galz Newsletter.  You can sign up at Gecko Galz (under the bathing beauty on the left of your screen).  I used inkscape to create the die cut frame and a offset shadow of it with my digital cat cougar.
Here are some close ups.
Here is a great look at the clear acrylic wheat sprays, pink mulberry roses and porcelain roses
I used some pink flat back pearls around the card background and frame.  I also used some of my favorite champagne flat back pearls for centers of my antique buttons.  
Look at the Gorgeous Ivory felt like leaves, and ivory drop bead garland!!  Yummy!!
Of course there is a hidden tag :0)
I added a few embellishments to it too, but kept it pretty flat so that it would slide in behind the vintage frame with out many problems.
I just LOVE this image from Gecko Galz!!  I used some of the fabby pink flat back pearls!  The Aqua seam binding is from  Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Here is the back of the tag.
I inked all the edges of my card tag, and die cuts with Ranger's Old Paper.

So what are you waiting for?  I know you have lots of embellishments laying around.  So why not add them to a fabulously vintage, shabby chic or primitive creation and come play along with us at Sugar Creek Hollow.

I will be sharing this with a few linky parties
