Squigglefly Challenge

Happy Monday! Are you ready for another Squigglefly Challenge today? Today's challenge is SFC0812 Spring is in the air....what does spring mean to you? flowers blooming, children playing, love in the air, gardening? It can mean all sorts of things. For me, it's a time to get out of the house before the heat of summer hits us. The addition to the challenge is that you must use a ribbon somewhere in your card. I chose this delightful puppy called "Balance Ball" from Squigglefly. I made this card using stunning papers from Paper Temptress.
The front of the card uses a wonderful thick column paper called Red Pepper Thick Column. The brown textured paper is a ruche called Cocoa Crepe. The crepe is used both as a border and as a die cut under the image. The image has been printed and colored on some great copic friendly paper called Neenah Solar White.

Inside the card, I added a fun sentiment from Squigglefly called "Chinese Character Hello" by artist Fawn Palmer. The paper is also from Paper Temptress a thick textured black paper called Black Felt Grandee and the image is on Neenah Solar White. To fufill the ribbon obligation, I added the beautiful red grossgrain ribbon here on the inside of the card.

I hope this card has inspired you to play in this week's Squigglefly Challenge. You just need to create a spring theme card and include some ribbon on it. Drop by the Challenge blog to see some wonderful samples from the Holley Hobbyists and then upload your own card to play! Be sure to use a Squigglefly stamp to qualify to win a prize.



As for blog candy today, there's a great prize from Paper Temptress. The store will give a $20 gift certificate to one winner. When you leave a comment today, drop by the Paper Temptress store and check out the wonderful papers and let me know which one is your favorite in your comment. Winner will be announced at the end of the month (i.e. most likely late wed or thursday morning). Huge thanks to Paper Temptress and Squigglefly!!



Cheers, Holley

  33. Great card again Holley! Wow, they do have some yummy papers over there at Paper Temptress! I'm really drawn to the Candido Incandescent cardstock! I would love to play with this shimmery, elegant looking paper and that color seems really versatile. I imagine it in one of my fancy Victorian collage cards with lace and ribbons and roses! Yum!

    I really love this doggie image- he's having lots of fun. TFS
    It's my first time at the Paper Temptress site- what an incredible variety of card/paper. Difficult to make a choice of just 1 favourite, but I did like the ruched collection. The texture of these looks fab.
    Hugs,
    Trish x

  41. Two more fab cards Holley. Love the cute little puppy and your second card is just stunning. I like the look of the Antique Parchment - but there is so much to choose from it's difficult to pick just one.
