Squigglefly Challenge #24, SFC2412 Border Patrol

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well, first let me tell you about last week's winner!  The requirements for last week's challenge were to create a shaped card (anything but the standard rectangle).  The winner for that challenge is Shirley Qu!  Check out her adorable card HERE using a wonderful image from artist Lynn Stansbery called Am I having what yet?

Please contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC2412 Border Patrol
Add some flair to your border with a punch, torn edge, deco scissors or ??? surprise me!  This flair can be to the edges around your image, the opening edge of your card or ALL the edges, you choose. Check out these samples to inspire you from the Holley Hobbyists.

Pat Martin created this card using a stamp called Eucharist by artist Diana Garrison.  Look at her stitched border.  That's just an amazing stamp that she colored.

Shawna Sealander designed a super adorable card using this amazing image from artist Cherly Alger called Sams Rainy Day. So Cute!  I just love the shaped frames that she used to enclose her images and the great embossed die cut in the background.  So many layers.  Ah, Oh that ribbon!!
Charlene Mitchell shares a wonderful card using Hearts as Big as a Whale by artist Louise Gardner.  She added wonderful borders around her finished image, her embellishments and her saying, which is a cute Squigglefly saying from artist Jess Holland for just .99!!
Tammy Hair created a very patriotic beauty using Diana Garrison's Proud.  This image comes in a set with three different images, two Tammy is using below, the giant USA and the "Happy 4th."  The set also comes with a "Proud to be an American" sentiment.  I just love how Tammy made the USA so large to take up the front of her card and then added te Happy 4th as a great accent.  Not to mention her three color border!!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  am using a fun image from Denise Clemensen called Summer Space Swimmer. Isn't he just adorable?  I used an edged border the image from Nestabilities and a border punch on the right hand edge of the card with three layers.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card this week! Now run out and find some fun embellishments, pick out some new shape or size, or just think up something totally different this week and show it to us!  We can't wait to see it.
