Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge

I really enjoy the collages made by Heather A. Hudson and she is the sponsor this week for the Sugar Creek Hollow  Challenge, so I really want a chance to win this one.  And as my husband always says, if you do not enter you can not win, sooooo, I made a card to enter.

I downloaded the images for this card from The Graphics Fairy and though you can not tell it in this photo, this is what it looks like before I cut out and layered on another image from The Graphics Fairy:
I used GIMP to merge two images.  I printed out the original flowers, cut them out and layered them on top. 

I used Spellbinder's to cut out the middle of the paper and layered it onto blue cardstock.  I used bling from Want2Scrap to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by and do not forget to make your own card for this challenge.  You will enjoy Heather's collages!!
