Create your imagination

I did this adorable card with some bright spring colors for this week's Squigglefly challenge.  The challenge this week is called "March to the beat of your own drum"  and thus it's Anything Goes!  I chose this adorable new image from artist Cheryl Alger called "Pencil Boy with Glasses" and I chose to make my card in a monotone theme using all green, predominately limes.   Isn't he too cute?
I added some great sentiment in vellum, "This world is but a canvas to our imagination."  Perfect!
Drop by the Squigglefly Challenge blog and play along with us this week.  Now's a great chance to take ANY Squigglefly image you love and make a card for a chance to win a prize. 

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill, DCWV, Neenah);  Image (Squigglefly); Saying (JoAnns); Flowers (Prima); Buttons (Jesse Jane); Twill (Doodlebug); Flowers (Prima); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue Dots, Glue All);  Brads (Making Memories); Color (Copic Markers);

Hi everyone--just checking to see if everyone has gotten their prizes from the Blog Candy Contests last month.  Most of them should have arrived at their destinations by now...I know a few countries have very very slow mail, but most I hope would have gotten there.  Please let me know if you didn't.  Cheers, Holley
