Squigglefly Challenge #36, SFC3612 Polka Dot Challenge

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 contest last week was to create a card in a  monochromatic pattern.  The winner is Carolyn of Luv My Cards.  She made an awesome card in oranges using a darling witch called Winnie the Witch from artist Jane Beljo.  Be sure to check out Carolyn's card.

Please contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC3612 Polka Dot Challenge

This week's challenge is very simple.  Create a card that has polka dots somewhere, on the card base, in the image, or on the embellishments.  Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists.

Pat Martin went all out with an easel card that shows off two fantastic Squigglefly image!  She used the wonderful vintage looking Kris Kringle from Marla Shega on the front, and when opened it stands up to reveal Three Stockings Waiting by Lynne Stansbery ready for him to fill

Linda Weber created a beautiful fall card with a stamp from artist Lynne Stansberry.  This image is called Apples and Pumpkins.  She's added some polka dot paper and gorgeous polka dot ribbon too.  I don't know about you but seeing those pumpkins just makes me want some pie! (apple pie for the hubby)

Jan Marshall  created a beautiful card filled with green and white.  Such a wonderful die cut on top and pretty polka dots in the background.  This stamp image is called A Purrfect Day by artist Fawn Palmer. I love her sheer polka dot ribbon!

Elizabeth Hart designed this polka dot beauty using Fawn Palmer's image called A Friend For You.  I just love her polka dot ribbon. Both sayings she is showing are also included with the stamp.  Isn't it adorable how the shirt matches that gorgeous paper stripe?

Charlene Mitchell shows a sweet card with a polka dot accent and a wonderful background with some bazzill swiss dotted cardstock.  She's using a great stamp called Sassy Sally and Bella Hide and Seek from artist Cheryl Alger.  Oh, aren't those butterflies the cutest?

Lisa Minkler crafted this fancy dimensional ornament.  All I can say is "WOW!"  This amazing creation uses an image from artist Lynne Stansbery called Antique Ornament #4.  Stunning creation.  There's a whole line-up of amazing ornaments from artist Lynne Stansbery now available at the store.

Tammy Hair created a wonderful card with an image from one of Squigglefly's newest artists!  This adorable image is from artist Keith Williams and is called Ferald Sleepwalking.  I just love the adorable saying she added, "Some people have trouble sleeping, but I can do it with my eyes closed!"  Ha!  That would be me.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used an adorable stamp  from artist Fawn Palmer called A Friend For You.  Both the sayings shown come with this adorable image.  This is the same image that   used above.  She used the mirror image though.  Isn't it great to see two cards with the same image?  Gives you lots of ideas!
I hope these cards have inspired you to make a polka dot inspired card this week.  You are always welcome to play no matter what images you use, but to be eligible for the prize, please use a stamp from Squigglefly!
