Hot, Hot, Hot

The Color Challenge at Squigglefly Challenge Blog calls for the HOT colors of RED and/or ORANGE.  I must use red and orange a lot, as I had a full folder of leftover scraps in my file drawer to use for this challenge.  So saying, I gathered up my orange and red scraps and made a cute little Wine Gift Bag for a dear friend who has been working her butt off to get ready for classes.  I mean little--it will only fit one or two of those individual bottles of wine.
Anyway, I used Squigglefly digi-image "This Little Piggy Had Chardonnay" by Suzanne Urban.  I love her images and own a few of them.
I colored my little piggy with Copics: R29; RC00,34 & 100 (black).  I added some shine with Stickles and Liquid Glass.  Framing my colored image with a bit of red, I then placed it on an orange piece of paper and glammed that up with ribbon and jewels.
Now it's your turn to jump into this color challenge with your own project.  You can use any image to play along, but to be eligible for the prize you must use a Squigglefly image. Head on over to the shop, or check out our freebies! If you're the winner you get to choose any Squigglefly image (including sets!) as your prize!
All I need now to finish my gift is to buy the bottles of wine and she will be able to get some well-deserved relaxation!  Come to think of it, those bottles come in 4 packs, don't they?  Hmm, I have been working very hard myself lately...

Love the gift bag- very stylish. Isn't it fun to create a 3D item and not just a card? I have been doing non-cards more often lately and it is fun.

Great job on the challenge.
