Squigglefly challenge: Green, Silver with Flowers

Here's a cutie that is part of a Squigglefly challenge week. The challenge was to make a card using green, silver and flowers. I had an adorable image called Don't be Scared. This cute design is from artist Susan Spiller, you can order this stamp straight from their website, download it immediately, then size it to the exact size you want. I did mine using Microsoft word then printed it out straight onto 100lb Neenah paper with my laser printer. Would you like the play in the challenge contest? you could win a prize Click here to read about it: Squigglefly Challenge This card is also using stunning papers from the Paper Temptress, wonderful!! I used some beautiful Emerald green Mica paper, some bright white (Heavenly White) paper, and some stunning almost textured looking silvery paper called Laser Silver Lustre. These papers go together beautifully to make this card. While checking out the Squigglefly site, look at Susan Spiller's other stamps and if you like the stamp I do, I must also say, take a peek at artist's Cheryl Alger's designs...you are gonna see some of her stuff soon!

Project Materials: Cardstock (Paper Temptress); Digi Stamp (Squigglefly-Don't be Scared); Rubber Stamps (Text); Ink (Memento); Flowers (Prima); Brads (unknown); Diecuts (Spellbinders-Nestabilities); Color (Copic Markers); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue Dots, Glue All);
