Squigglefly Challenge #119 - SFC119 - YIPES STRIPES

Happy Columbus Day to our US friends!
Welcome to our new challenge!

Congratulations to the winner of last week's paper piecing challenge:
The winner is Anne!

Congratulations, Anne!
Please contact Holly for your image.
Thank you for participating in the Squigglefly Challenge last week.

To win you must use a Squigglefly image.
Freebies are available on the Squigglefly website.

Thanks to everyone who participated last week's challenge (but we would love to see more players)!
We can't wait to see your projects for this week!
Now... onto THIS week's challenge:
Use stripes somewhere on your card.
They can be part of the image, background paper or an embellishment.
Show us your creativity and have fun!

This week, my team, Squigglefly's Heather's Headliners
created the following for your inspiration:

used "Nerd Boy Skeleton"by artist Marlene S. (you'll see her name several times today). Terri cleverly created a whole scene worthy of the Addam's family. Fantastic details like the fence and a popped up pumpkin. Boo!

Tammy chose "Nerd Girl Witch" by artist Marlene S. Check out the cool toned stripes and the angled sentiment with stars. What lovely coloring- so many shades of purple.

Holley showed off "Nerdy Cat Girl" by artist Marlene S (again). Notice the neutral with a splash of orange color palette and the sideways sentiment.

Debbie used "Hugs" by Angela Donato and the accompanying "Sending you Hugs" sentiment by Jess Holland. What beautiful coloring and such soft colors. Aren't the flowers, fussy cut sentiment feminine and sweet and perfect for the image?

Peggy used "Nerdy Girl Witch" by you guessed it- Marlene S. Very cool crisscrossed ribbon and a sparkly vertical sentiment.

Stephanie used "Shy Bear- Caring Bear" by artist Lynne Stansbery. I love the contrast of the papers and did you notice the messages of hope on the white layer?

Pat used "Witch on a Pumpkin" created by artist Jackie Matthews. Don't miss how Pat fussy cut the main image so it looks like the bat are flying and the vines are growing! Love the added touch of glitz on the hat band and broom too.

***Please take a look at the challenge rules- we updated them recently***
We realize that many people don't have blogs, but instead participate in our challenges using on-line galleries and we love that you are helping us spread the word about Squigglefly! However, many of the galleries require passwords and not all of us at Squigglefy belong to every gallery or group. To help us make sure we don't miss your artwork, we are asking that if you do use an online gallery that you leave us a comment on the challenge post. That way we'll be sure to have a member of the Squigglefly team who is a member of that gallery (SCS, CDAC, PCP, etc) can validate your entry.
1) If you up-load your creation to any on-line photo galleries, please use SFC119 for your keywords when loading your creation photo there.
1b) please leave a comment on the challenge blog post so that someone from Squigglefly can validate your entry for the prize.
2) You don't *have* to include a Squigglefly image on your creation, but in order to qualify for the prize you will need to use one! You can also combine SF images with non-SF images to qualify! Don't have one? There are several FREEBIES you can grab!
3) You have one week to complete the challenge and it will close Sunday evening. The winner will be announced at the same time the new challenge post comes be sure to check back EVERY Monday to see if you are a winner!
4) Please leave a direct link to your entry in the comments below. The our linking tool works sporadically and we don't want to miss your project! (No back-linking please!)

Thanks for joining us for this week's challenge. We're looking forward to seeing your striped creations
