Squigglefly Challenge

Here's a fun card I made for this week's Squigglefly Challenge.  This cute image is from artist Fawn Palmer and is called Birthday Mermaid.  This card however isn't for a birthday, it's just a celebration card.  You can see the little flags on there, made out of toothpicks "Life is Sweet" and "Eat Cake"; 
This week's challenge at Squigglefly is called Square Peg in a round hole, the goal is to think outside the box and take something new or different and add it to your card.  In my case, I am using some shells, sand (right from outside) and some toothpick embellishments.  Check out the Squigglefly Challenge Blog for other examples and suggestions.

Project Materials:  Cardstock(Bazzill, HobbyLobby, Neenah, DCWV);  Digi-Stamp(Squigglefly);  Texas (Shells, Sand);  Toothpicks(Basic Grey);  DieCut (Spellbinders Nestabilities);  Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All, Glue Dots, Glue Pen);  Color (Copic Markers);

  8. Now that is thinking outside the box alright. I would have never thought to do a beach card and use real sand. Those toothpick flags are great too!
