Just peachy

Hi my friends. It's time for another Squigglefly challenge (SFC96 - Spring Showers/May Flowers) on the Squigglefly blog.

With Spring comes rain! And of course the rain helps bring out all of those gorgeous flowers! So incorporate "May flowers" on your creation for this challenge...paper flowers, make your own flowers or use a SF image that incorporates flowers on it! Most importantly, have fun!!

Although you may use any images on your creation to enter the challenge, in order to qualify for the prize you must use at least one Squigglefly image! You may combine SF images with non-SF images to qualify! If you don't have any Squigglefly images, help yourself from the FREEBIES available.

You have until Sunday evening to upload your new creation to your blog or any on-line photo gallery. Please use SFC96 in your keywords.

Please add a DIRECT link to your project in the InLinkz box on the SF blog, so we can find it -- (new creations only and no back-linking please!). If you have more than one entry, link each one separately.

The winner will be announced at the same time the new challenge post comes up next Monday, so be sure to check back to see if you are a winner!

For my card, I used a new image called Peach, which I printed in two sizes, colored with copic markers and cut out.

For the background, I used a Spellbinders impressabilities (silhouette flowers) as a stencil and sponged groovy guava ink over it onto some patterned paper. I tied some black crochet cotton around the cardstock and then attached the two pieces with dimensional tape.

The sentiment is from Smell the Flowers set and the leaves are from Fancy Flowers. Both were colored with copic markers. I ran a black marker along the edges of the sentiment piece instead of adding another layer of cardstock there.

The flower is hand crocheted, with a large brad as the center, and the leaves are just tucked underneath.

Be sure to stop over at the Squigglefly blog and check out what the rest of the design team has done with today's challenge. And then hop on over to to check out the newest images.

Thank you so much for stopping in today. Have a blessed week.
