Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC4012 Specialty Paper!

This week's theme is Specialty Paper.  Don't we all own some amazing papers?  How about we put some on our cards.  I'll let you choose which paper you want to share, how about some beautiful printed paper, lovely shimmery paper, great mirrored cardstock, fun textured paper, stunning foreign paper, see through vellum, clear transparencies, there's just so many choices.  Did you know that Squigglefly now sells amazing Designer paper color paper sets that you can print out?  Pick some gorgeous paper and make a card for this week's challenge.  Let us start out with some great inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists.

Pat Martin created this wonderful wintertime card using handmade paper, a beautiful die cut snowflake from glitter paper and some of the new designer paper from artist Inger Harding.  This paper comes in an amazing collection which gives you a whole array of printed color papers and die cut images for just $5.00.  Her image comes from the "Winter Wonderland Papers" collection.

Jan Marshall  created a beautiful fall card with warm color and metallic die cut paper.  She's using a lovely new image from Cheryl Alger called Autumn Bench Sitter.  What a delightful flower she added, I just love the amazing papers she is using here and how well she layered them.  Isn't her coloring gorgeous?

Elizabeth Hart designed this wonderful Halloween themed card  using  image called Jen is Purrfect Costume.  This stamp is from artist Cheryl Alger.  What an adorable card with the cutest printed and embellished papers.  Purrrfect!

Charlene Mitchell designed this delightful fall card.  She's using two of the newest image just released at the Squigglefly store this week.  One is Cheryl Alger's new Autumn Bench Sitter and the other image is from Fawn Palmer called Three Little Pumpkins.  Look at how her paper matches her adorable flowers!  SO cute! She also has a layer of vellum behind her saying and her image.

Lisa Minkler crafted this delightful card using a great image from artist Cheryl Alger. This little girl has some sassy attitude and she's called Petunia.   She's also using amazing specialty paper from Squigglefly artist Inger Harding .  This paper you can download straight from the site and print it out yourself!  How great is that?  You get a whole designer collection of color Christmas papers and designs for just $5 and they print out in color.  The paper line used here is called A Joyful Christmas Papers.  Didn't her card turn out amazing?  check out that little tag...that handmade flower...

Tammy Hair created this sweet card using a cute baby and some delightful printed paper.  I just love the delightful sentiment she added.  Here's the front and inside of her card.  This image is called "Baby in a Tutu (Coming and Going)."  How cute is that? tutu cute, if you ask me!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Fawn Palmer called Sexy Witch.  I layered it on some fun skull and crossbones paper.  Then I added some great borders, one is a shimmery glitter stream of bat and theother is a glossy black border of words and skulls.
I hope these cards have inspired you to make an 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!
