Squigglefly Challenge #24, SFC2413 May Your Colors Be True, Red White and Blue!

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for this week's challenge? Well,first let me tell you last week's winner.  We had a great challenge last week to use wrap somewhere in your card, be it wrapping ribbon/twill or adding gift wrap.  The winner was Sue Drees who created a beautiful card using Lynne Stansberry's Blowing Me a Kiss.

Please contact Holly at usyungs@gmail.com for your prize.

This week's challenge is SFC2413 May Your Colors Be True, Red White and Blue!

 Since the 4th of July is approaching, many of us here in the USA are thinking of the summer Holiday, but, you don't have to create a 4th of July card, you are welcome to create any card using the red, white and blue color scheme to qualify. We'd love to see you use a Squigglefly image, if you want to win the prize, it's required, but to play along, it's not necessary.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful red white and blue card  for Independence day using a great image from artist Pammie Lehto.  This image is called 4 Stars.   How very Patriotic!



 Jan Marshall  created this lovely card with the color combination of the week.   This Calla Lily image comes from artist Pamela Lehto.  I love the red white and blue banner on the top of her card.  Beautiful.


 
Elizabeth Hart designed a lovely card using a sweet stamp from artist Diane Carubia called Bicycle Ride.  I love the shades of red, white and blue that she chose to make this gorgeous card.

 
Charlene Mitchell used an stunning image called  Rose and Bow. The  image is created by artist Pamela Lehto.  What a beautiful way to use to color combo red, white and blue.

  
Darlene Pavlick created a gorgeous patriotic card using Cheryl Alger's Honoring the Flag. What a delightful card for the 4th of July.  Wouldn't you love to send this to your serviceman who's overseas?


Tammy Hair created a humorous card using a brand new image from artist Pamela Lehto called Feeling Fowl.  It comes with the adorable sentiment shown below.  Don't you love the embossed background on the card?  Wonderful red, white and blue creation.

 
And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Cheryl Alger as well as Pamela Lehto.  This adorable little boy is called Be Prepared.   The stars above and below him are called 4 Stars.
  
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 at least one stamp from Squigglefly!

We realize that many people don't have blogs, but instead participate in our challenges using on-line galleries. 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 Squigglefly 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 SFC2413 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 from the Squigglefly store, hop on over there. Those images will qualify you for the prize.

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 up...so be sure to check back EVERY Monday to see if you are a winner!
