Squigglefly Challenge #125 - SFC125 - ETCH MY SKETCH!

Happy Monday and welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge.

Before we announce this week's challenge, please join me in thanking and congratulating the winner of last week's BIRTHDAY CARD challenge, ANNE! Anne's card featured Squigglefly's FREE Hummingbird digi.

Anne, please contact Holly for your image.
Thanks for joining the challenge and for reminding everyone of the great free Squigglefly digi's available.

To win you must use a Squigglefly image (our free digi's count, too!)

Thanks to everyone who participated last week's challenge
(but we would love to see even more players)!
We can't wait to see your projects for this week!

Here's this week's challenge:
Use the sketch below as the basis of your project. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, just make sure we can tell you used our sketch ;) Also if you prefer to make the background strips all the same or all different, it is ok with us ;)

My team, Heather's Headliners, had a great time using the sketch to create this week's samples.

Stephanie used "Gift Bearer" by artist Cheryl Alger. Love this color scheme and the vertical sentiment.

Tammy used "Mouseltoe" by artist Diane Carubia. Isn't the fur absolutely purrrfect? I love the repeated use of Christmas lights all over the card- especially the 3D bulbs!

Holley used "Angel Maisy" by Diane Carubia. Love the clean and simple lines and the metallic sentiment.

Peggy used "Baby of Mine" by Squigglefly co-owner Chesney Young. Love the woodgrained paper and the baker's twine- perfect for the giraffes!

Teri used another snowman image called "Jump, Snowman, Jump!" by artist Cheryl Alger. The snowflakes papers are perfect for that snowman image.

Pat used "Computer Trouble" another image by Chesney Young. (Who hasn't had this happen to their computer?) I love how Pat made all 3 panels different and how the desk is shaded.

Debbie used "Here We Come A-Caroling" by artist Lynne Stansbery. Great coloring and the pine boughs look real! Debbie realized how great her focal image looks in a circular shape so she added a rectangular layer underneath it to pop it.

And finally, Heather (that's me), used "Upside Down Snowman" by artist and Bond Girl Marlene Shaw. I added some very pale colored pencil to add some shadows to the snow.

***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 SFC125 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!)
