Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome back to another Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday. This week the challenge was a Sketch! I just adore sketches because when things get busy like this week has been it's the perfect starting point. I chose to use the baby Jesus image this week once again. When you have an image this beautiful it's hard not to use it time and time again. The pictures I took really do not do this card justice.

For the front of the card I chose to print the Scruffy Manger Digi on MME Life Stories paper and cut the center out as my looking-glass for the image inside. I paper pieced some pattern papers for the manger base to give it more depth. The corner accents were some very old K&Co die-cuts I had in my stash. I loaded this card up with some Wild Orchid Craft pearls to accent the ribbon threaded lace. The Adore oval was a leather sticker I had in my stash. After looking at the picture I should have inked the edges with a black ink to tie it in better with the card.
Inside of card: I still want to add more to it just not sure what yet! I ran out of time for crafting for the day and wanted to post my card.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my card. Please stop by the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog and check out the other DT cards for this weeks challenge there is such amazing talent to be seen.

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Incredible Dawn! First of all so creative to use these two images together and second the paper piecing of the hay is a simply fantastic technique. I love your lace too - wonderful combination with the rustic-ness feel of the manger. So beautiful.
Hugs to you,

Hi Dawn!
This is absolutely fantastic! So very cool that you added the Baby Jesus image to the scruffy manger! The little touches of purple is lovely!

Love your paper piecing and I think I may be wrong since everyone thinks you combined the images but is that a window card? Either way it looks great! Love the realistic hay.

Oh creative you are! Love what you did with combining these two images. Your DP is just the perfect compliment to your design as well.
