Make a card that is sunny and bright-use yellow on your card! That is the new Squigglefly Challenge on their blog this week, and I have been enjoying some sunny and bright moments this weekend. I made my card while still at home, packing up for a road trip with my teen daughter to visit her first college. I took a photo of the card and brought my camera along for the trip, so am able to schedule this post for Monday, although it is a Sunday night.
My card uses an image from Marlene S called Worry Warts. The image actually comes with its own sentiment but I used my own. I made an easel card due to my 2-part sentiment, as I feel the easel card gives the front and inside sentiment an impact otherwise lost on a regularly-folded card.
On ther right is my card closed flat. I paper-pieced the image, and attached it in two parts with dimensional tape for, well, dimension! Free-cut and inked a lily pad, added some watery-looking patterned paper, inked the yellow background with white ink and popped a cloud there, and printed out the first part of my sentiment: "Frog Parking Only", trying to make it look like a traffic sign.
When my card is opened and propped up on its "easel", you can read both parts of the sentiment, the second one reading: "All others will be Toad".
I saw this sentiment on a bumper sticker this month and thought what a great card it would make, so went rooting around for an image to match it!
I love digi's for this very reason. I rooted around for it in my Squigglefly digi collection on my computer, which was so easy to look for and find the image I wanted. I can also print it the size and perspective I wanted for my card!
By the way, did you see the worried little lady bug in the lower right corner? I think he wants to beat a fast retreat before he gets "TOAD away"! LOL
Okay, your turn to play in the Squigglefly challenge this week. You could be the lucky winner of a free digi--the only difficult part is choosing just one!!!
