SFC102 a masculine birthday

Happy Monday, my friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It's time for another Squigglefly challenge over on their blog.  Today's challenge (SFC102) is to make masculine cards.

I started by using an image from Monogram Frames Set and stretched it out from a square to a rectangle that would fit my card.  I also typed the sentiment on my computer using Impact font and printed it in blue.  I trimmed them both and added black marker along the edge of the sentiment rectangle, as well as some tiny photo corners (EK Success punch).  The dots on the corners are made with a black marker.  The center rectangle is raised on dimensional tape.

We'd love to have you play along with the challenge this week. 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, there are many to choose from, or help yourself from the FREEBIES available.  Be sure to also check out all the new images.

All proceeds from this cute little Fairy Klara by artist Jane Beljo will go, a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  View the full image at

You have until Sunday evening to upload your new creation to your blog or any on-line photo gallery. Please use SFC102 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!

Be sure to stop over at the Squigglefly blog to see what the rest of the design team has done for today's challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.
