Squigglefly Challenge #44, SFC4412 Ribbons and Bows!

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 using Squares.  The winner was Carolyn from LuvMyCards for her awesome card using Diane Garrison's Butterfly Beauties.  Be sure and look at Carolyn's card HERE.

  The winner can contact Holly at, for your prize.
Now, on to this week's challenge, SFC4412 Ribbons and Bows!

This week's theme is Ribbons and Bows.  You can either add a real ribbon and/or bow to your card OR use a stamp image that has a ribbon or bow on the image OR use an embellishment of a ribbon or bow, for example a brad shaped like a bow or a button shaped like a bow!

Let's start with some examples made by the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin created this cheerful card with a bright blue ribbon and bow.  This stunning image comes from artist Jane Beljo and is called A Gingerbread House.   Doesn't it look good enough to eat? Did you know Squigglefly also has an adorable set of Gingerbread men (click here)?

Jan Marshall  created a perfect pink card using an adorable stamp from Cheryl Alger. This stamp is called   Mischievous Polly the Christmas Elf.  There's a bunch of adorable bows all over this cute image.  Perfect for the challenge.  In addition, she added some wonderful pink polka dot ribbon to the base of her card.  So cute!

Elizabeth Hart designed this holiday theme card in amazing colors and added a beautiful PINK bow to match the beautiful PINK bow on the image itself!  That's two times the challenge.  This image comes from artist Inger Harding and is called Angel with Candle.

Charlene Mitchell designed this pretty card using amazing ribbon (see her blog for details), note her cute little image also has a BOW in her hair.  She's using a sentiment called Chinese Thinking of You from artist Fawn Palmer. Her adorable image is from artist Cheryl Alger.  She's called Polly is a Perfect Angel.  What a delight!

Lisa Minkler crafted this stunning card using a great image from artist Jane Beljo. It's called A Gingerbread House.  Her decor is just stunning, Wow! And don't you love that winter theme ribbon under the house?

Tammy Hair created this sweet card using a great stamp from artist Cheryl Alger.  This stamp is called Candy Cane Sally.  Her card has a bow in the image and two bows that she added on her card.  How darling!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Diana Garrison called Christmas Bird.  This stamp comes with two wonderful sayings, the one shown below on the card, and another saying "Catch the Christmas Spirit." I added two ribbons to the border above and below the saying.

I hope these cards have inspired you to make a card to play along 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!
