Squigglefly Challenge #44, SFC4414 Use Patterned Paper

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge. We are happy to welcome our newest artist  Sal Scheibe to the Squigglefly family.  Congratulations to Ruth the winner of last week's challenge, use a frame on your card, for her creation using a wonderful freebie from Squigglefly artist Dawn Collins called Framed Witch.
This week's winner can please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC4214 Use Patterned Paper

For this week's challenge you simply need to use patterned paper somewhere on your card. It can be your background cardstock, your die cut embellishments or even your photo mats.  We can't wait to see what you create. 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 created this lovely card using a brand new stamp from artist Niina Niskanen. I just love how her dress color matches her card pattern.  This beautiful image is called She Plays for the Waves. 

Kecia Waters  created this amazing card using the most beautiful golden printed snowflake papers.  This lovely snowman image is from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger.  This image is called Fat Round Snowman.   How stunning is her coloring?  Oh, so perfect!

Elizabeth Hart made a wonderful card  this week using a stamp from our brand new Squigglefly artist  Sal Scheibe.  How gorgeous is her color combo?  Just look at the wings she colored!  This fairy is called Nature Fairy.

Jen Leeflang created this beautifully made Thank You card with gorgeous flowers  This sweet image is from artist Cheryl Alger and is called Have a Heart Girl..  Can't you imagine so many other holidays for this?  Color the hearts in Christmas colors and put "Dear Santa", make the card red/pink and put Happy Valentines,....I can think of so many fun ideas for this image!

Darlene Pavlick created this gorgeous winter theme card with an adorable snowman from artist Cheryl Alger. She's using beautiful snowflake paper and a lovely sentiment. This image is A Frosty Cup of Cocoa.

Tammy Hair created this adorable doggie card using a new image from  Brian Lock and a brand new sentiment. Isn't her coloring amazing?  This cutie is called Caffeine Canine. What gorgeous paper piecing. This fun sentiment is just .99 and is called Silent Scream.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog) have a wonderful image from artist Niina Niskanen and is called Bubbles.  I am using some fun printed paper with flowers and bling to create a happy theme.

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!
