SFC3013 - It's Squigglefly Time once again . . .

Happy Monday my friends!

Today at Squigglefly it's all about Piercing or Piecing for our challenge.  But, before I get on with telling you about my DT card sample, I wanted to be sure you heard the news!  Squigglefly has a new artist joining the staff on August 3rd.  Her name is Judith Hart and her images are adorable!  I hope you'll stop over on August 3rd for the new release and welcome Judith to the already amazing group of artists on staff at Squigglefly.

Now ... as to my card creation, I chose to do piercing since I haven't done that technique in a very long time!

(inside view)
Isn't this image adorable!!  It's called "It's a Jump Rope Kind of Day Maddy" by Cheryl Grant Alger.

The design is actually quite simple as I really wanted to keep the focus on this HAPPY young lady!  I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun ... remember, it can be PIERCING or PIECING ... or both!!

A few challenges:
Catered Crop - Summertime
Come and Get It Challenges - Humorous Birthday
Dream Valley Challenges - Summer Days
Hobby Cutz Challenge - Summer

I didn't have a sentiment that worked for the inside of my card so I generated my own through Photo Shop Elements.  Added a little flower (as I did to the envelope flap) and Viola! ... cute as a button creation!

Remember to use a Squigglefly image to win but if you don't have one, try one of their freebies

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you're off to a fabulous start for the week!
As always ...

Papers:   White cs, Black cs, Goldenrod cs, Summer Sun cs
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Fiskar swivel craft knife, SU paper piercer/pad, Orange gingham ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Stampendous diamond dots, Prima flowers, Martha Stewart leaf punch

Darlene this is really cute. I love the freehand shape you cut the image out, and the piercing around the shape accentuates it so well! I also really love the colors you used.
