Squigglefly Challenge #18, SFC1814 Run for the Border

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 share a mother's day card.  The winner is Virginia M for her lovely card using Tulip Trio from artist Betsy LePlatt.

Please contact Holly at for your prize.
This week's challenge is SFC1814 Run for the Border!
  The challenge this week is Run for the Border.  Add some decor the border of your card. This could be a punch, some decorative scissors, a fun brush of ink, some beautiful ribbons or laces, or surprise me with something fun!  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 inspiration from the Holley Hobbyists:
 Pat Martin used a bright and beautiful floral heart image on her stand up card.  Her border is a gorgeous punch.  This image is from brand new Squigglefly artist Niina Niskanen and is called Spring Heart.  Nice work Pat!

Jan Marshall  created this sweet card.  I totally love this image.  This image is called Twinkle Toes and comes from artist Fawn Palmer.  She added a beautiful and delicate border to the base.  Don't you love the sentiment on the balloon? It says "Hope your day is Tutu-ly Fabulous!" the image also comes with three more sentiments for just $3

Elizabeth Hart created a wonder boy themed card.  How great is that?  This new image is from brand new Squigglefly artist James Horvath called Skateboarder.  I just love the red and yellow border she added and how it matches the skateboard and helmet on this image. 

Charlene Mitchell made this stunning card using a beautiful mermaid from artist Niina Niskanen. This image is called Mer butterflies. Don't you love how she colored all the edges of her card with colored dots?  What a clever border design!
Darlene Pavlick created this fun filled sport themed card using a great image from artist Cheryl Grant Alger.  This image is called The Game is in the Player.  Don't you love the soccer paper and how she added ladybugs on there?  Her gorgeous border is wonderful matching vines to the colors on her card.

 Tammy Hair created this great guy card using a brand new image from artist Fawn Palmer. This cutie is called Recycle Guy.  What a clever border! Wow, Tammy.  Both the sayings shown are included with the image.

And lastly, I (Holley Barnhart from Holley's Blog)  thought I would make a fun card using a brand new image  from artist Cheryl Grant Alger called Say Cheese Please.  I am using matching paper as well as a strip of mica cardstock as my border.
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!
