Sugar Creek Hollow week 18

What a fun week we have in store for you at 
This week we were each given an image from our Sponsor
Come play along with us.  Create a Vintage or Shabby Chic Creation that includes some "Vintage Children" and you will have a chance at winning a $10 Gift Certificate to Create with TLC that our sponsor has generously donated.  The winner will be chosen by Random Draw.  You will want to visit my Design Team sisters's blogs, we each have a different digi to play with!  You will be inspired :0)
I was given the image below which I painted in GIMP.
Those of you who have been following me know I don't have any girls, so I thought it would be fun to give the girls each a dress that looked like it was made from matching Calico Fabric.
I used a background that I created with an Image from the Graphic fairy and used it for all three girls dresses as well as the little doll laying on the floor.
I used two Graphic Fairy images, one for the picture on the wall (bluebirds) and the rose that is in the center of the plate (it is the same one I used for the dress pattern that I created).  I used some different brushes in Gimp (also available in photo shop) to create my pattern on the couch and floor (hard to see that one).  
I printed out my image, distressed the edges with my scissors, then inked them with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  I place this on top of a piece of Graphic 45 paper that I measured out to be 1/2 inch larger than my image.  I used one of my favorite Spellbinder dies with a piece of the London Market papers from Pink Paislee.
My favorite Champagne flatback pearls from Pro 31 Designs adorn the edges of my card.  I used individual pink flatback pearls as well as someiridecent crystal bling trim to dress up my Rectangle die cut.  I place this piece with dimensional pop dots onto a dark red scrap of patterned scrapbook paper.
The Ivory Mulberry Rose is also from Pro 31 Designs.  The vintage seam binding is some I won from the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge blog.  The ivory crochet flower is from my stash, I just added the champagne pearl center.
One final look at the card.
Get going on your Shabby Chic or Vintage themed creations and don't forget to add some "Vintage Children" to play along with us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week!
