Squigglefly Challenge #34, SFC3414 Let's go 'round the Block

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge. First let's announce last week's winner.  Last week, our challenge was to create a card using Red, Brown, Yellow, and Orange.   The winner is Suze, who used a beautiful perched owl image from artist Deena Perault.
  
This week's winner can please contact Holly at usyungs@gmail.com for your prize.
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This week's challenge is SFC3414 Let's go 'round the block

This week's challenge  is called let's go 'round the block.  The challenge is to round everything on your card.  You can use die cut shapes (like ovals, circles...) that are already rounded, but any square corners are not allowed.  We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
 
Let's start with some great examples from the Holley Hobbyists:
 
Pat Martin thought up a great idea for this project!  She made a clock!  This wonderful image is from artist Sandra Caldwell and she is called Angel and the Birdy.  I am guessing this project will go round and round and round,....
 
Kecia Waters  created this adorable card using a new image from Squigglefly artist James Sandra Caldwell.  She used some rounded corners and enclosed her image in circle diecuts. This image is called  Bearly in School..  I love the colors she used!



 Elizabeth Hart designed this gorgeous card using a new stamp from Squigglefly artist Norma Burrell.  This image is called Dreamer. Isn't the color combo on this card just stunning?  How about those pearl dots on her image?
 

 Jen Leeflang created this stunning card with a lovely image from artist Norma Burrell.  Isn't her coloring stunning?  This image is called Pussywillow Fairy.   Below shows the inside of the card as well.

  
Darlene Pavlick created this stunning monotone masterpiece using a wonderful image from artist James Horvath. This image is called Notepad and Pencil. Now, could you tell that is just what this image was? she added an amazing cover to the notepad!  This image is on sale at the store for just $1!  Look at how clever and stunning this card is, perfect for that history buff/traveler you know.  Think of all the clever things you can do with this simple image and Darlene's idea.
 
Tammy Hair created this bright and beautiful card using a new stamp from artist Cheryl Alger. This lovely image is called Hello There Neighbor.  The sign on the stamp is actually left blank so you can fill it in. Don't you want to reach out and hug her?
 

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) used this adorable image from Squigglefly artist Sandra Caldwell.  This cutie is called Bearly on a Cloud.  I used a corner rounder punch on all my corners for the challenge.
 
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use at least one stamp from Squigglefly!
