Squigglefly Challenge #14, SFC1413 I Give Thee a Recipe

Welcome to the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for this week's challenge? First let me tell you last week's winner.
 We had a fun contest last week to include a liquid theme somewhere in your card.  Heather M created a beautiful card on her blog using Lazy Paisley  by artist Fawn Palmer. Congrats Heather!
Please contest Holly at for your prize.
For this week's challenge, SFC1413 I Give Thee a Recipe!

This week the challenge is to take all the items included in the recipe and add them to your card in any manner that you like.  The recipe for the week is to add any kind of tag, at least two brads, and some amount of printed paper.  You are welcome to add anything else.  We of course always love a Squigglefly image, it's not required to play, but to be eligible for the prize, must be included.
Let's start with some inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:

Pat Martin crafted this beautiful card using gorgeous paper with matching lace.  Adorable pearl brads and a cute yellow tag.  That image is from artist Diane Garrison and is called Dove.  I love how she colored the image to match the patterned paper.  Gorgeous.
Jan Marshall  created this wonderful  card with beautiful printed pink papers and she also printed out an image on her cardstock before adding an adorable image from artist Cheryl Alger called Pondering Thoughts.  Her tag has a cute sentiment "Thinking of you" and she's used two beautiful brads!  Perfect. This cute image also comes with some adorable sayings (not shown here) and cute ladybugs.
Elizabeth Hart designed a bright spring card using cheerful paper that matches her coloring perfect! This cute girl is called Ace in the Hole  designed by artist Cheryl Alger.  I love her Cheer Up! Tag, a yellow balloon sure would cheer me up, as would getting this card.  This cute image also comes with another saying "In order to win, you must sometimes leave a few cards showing..." plus an extra couple images, all for just $3!  Too cute.

Charlene Mitchell used an stunning image called Big Butterfly from artist Diana Garrison. I am sure you can see the pretty printed paper she chose, the lovely tag and brad #1...and you see the second brad?'s the adorable lady bug!  Wonderful work Charlene.
 Darlene Pavlick crafted this stunning card using a large tag and swirly brads.  That adorable digi-stamp comes from artist Cheryl Alger and is called Back Yard Vacation.  Don't you love the shimmery paper in the background? it looks like those leaves have a glaze on them!
Tammy Hair created this lovely butterfly card using a wonderful tag and three gorgeous brads.  The stamp is called Big Butterfly from artist Diana Garrison.  I really like the printed paper she chose and the texture on that tag!

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  used a great image from artist Cheryl Alger.  This adorable image is called Beauty in the Making.  I added some festive pink printed paper.  My brads are the beautiful hearts and the word inspire.  The cute saying on my tag "To dance, is to dream with your feet."  as well as, several additional images including wonderful music notes, shoes, and sayings that are all included for only $3! What a great deal.
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!
