Squigglefly Challenge #20, SFC2014 All Shapes and Sizes

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge. First let's announce last week's winner.  Last week, our challenge was to add something cup cake themed to your card.  The winner is Virginia M who made this adorable card using  A Wish Fish by Diana Garrison and Cupcake Kit  by Jane Beljo.

Please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC2014 All Shapes and Sizes!
This week the challenge is called "All shapes and sizes"....I know we always like to use matching shapes as layering borders on our cards.  I layer an image on a rectangle, then use a larger rectangle to lay it on and so forth. Well, this week let's do layering with DIFFERENT shapes! Cut your image in one shape, layer it on a different shape. Maybe even two different shapes? let's see what we can all come up with!  We'd love for you to use a Squigglefly image, to be prize eligible it's required, but everyone is welcome to play along.
Let's start with some great examples from the Holley Hobbyists:
 Pat Martin  really nailed this week's theme!  WOW, look how she used four different shapes on her card and they all look fabulous together!  Stunning.  This image is from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger and is called Say Cheese Please.  Nice work Pat!

Jan Marshall  created this sweet card.  Her large background on her scallop card is a square, topped with a star and then her fun image!  This image is called Gizmo and comes from artist James Horvath.  Isn't this a great card for a boy?
Elizabeth Hart created a stunning card filled with gorgeous layered shapes, a large rounded square, a beautiful image in a rectangle, a half circle, some smaller rectangular embellishments and some great border shapes.  This new image is from Cheryl Alger called Joey's got Spunk. So lovely. 

Charlene Mitchell made a great boy theme card using a brand new image from artist James Horvath.  This image is called Skateboarder .  Don't you just love her card's shape?  Gorgeous work Charlene.
Darlene Pavlick created this fun filled sport themed card using a great image from artist James Horvath.  This image is called Gizmo.  Don't you love all the shapes you see on there? How about those googly eyes on the word ZOOM?

 Tammy Hair created this great guy card using a brand new image from artist James Horvath. This cutie is called Dog Artist.  How perfect is her card using this image?  I am stunned by the beautiful clouds she added to the image, not to mention her layering using polka dots and a square border, how about that pile of bones?  TOO cute!!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  thought I would make a fun card using a brand new image  from artist James Horvath called Messy Kid's Bed.  I am using layers as well as embossing plus a sentiment that says "play."

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!

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 SFC2014 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.
