Squigglefly Challenge #36, SFC3614 Stripes

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 create a card using a Star.   The winner is Janet who created a beautiful witchy card using Framed Witch from artist Dawn Collins.
This week's winner can please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC3614 Stripes

This week's challenge  is to add something with stripes to your card. That could be something in your image that is striped, striped paper on your card, a striped embellishment (like a flower or brad) or surprise us, as long as your card has some stripes.  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 added some great stripes to her card.  Both some vertically striped paper in the background as well as some staples to make small horizontal stripes.  Clever! This wonderful image is from artist James Horvath and is called Tongue Tied.  He's only $2 at the store.

Kecia Waters  created this adorable card using a new image from Squigglefly artist James Horvath.  She has incorporated her stripes into the image using paper piecing. This image is called  Chicken Newscaster.  It comes with three other hilarious sentiments!
 Elizabeth Hart designed this gorgeous card using a brand new stamp from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger called Autumn Swing.  Don't you love the striped paper in her card's background?  Just lovely.  How about those tiny acorns?

 Jen Leeflang created this adorable Christmas theme card with a lovely image from artist Tam Hess.  Isn't her coloring stunning?  This image is called Winter Fox.   That sentiment is too cute.

Darlene Pavlick created this gorgeous two tone card.  I just LOVE this color combination, did you notice both papers she chose have stripes on them?  She is using a brand new image from artist Fawn Palmer. This image is called Hurt Bunny.  This sweet image comes with the sentiment shown and one additional saying.

Tammy Hair created this get well card using a new stamp from artist Fawn Palmer. This lovely image is called Hurt Bunny.  Can you tell what the stripes are? Yep, it's done with gauze bandages.  How cool is that?


And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) used this adorable image from Squigglefly artist Sandra Caldwell.  This cutie is called Raggedy El and Ellie.  There's both stripes in my image, as well as on my card base.
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!
