Squigglefly Sneak Peek in Teal, Pink & White

(Psst! Click here for the QKD Thirteen Days of Halloween Blog Hop.

What's new today?  Squigglefly has a new weekly challenge, and it's a color challenge! They want you to use the color combo of: TEAL, PINK & WHITE.  I love these challenges because I use up my leftover stash!  Do you know how I organize all those leftover pieces of paper?  I keep them in a file drawer.  Each folder holds all shades of a color.  When I play in a color challenge, I pull the folders with papers in colors I need for the challenge--easy peasy!!

Today I made an easel card for you, in order to show off not one but two great Squigglefly artists and a wonderful quote.  My card base is layered with two shades of teal and some pink cardstock.

Closed, the card showcases a sneak peek at Fawn Palmer's soon-to-be-released "Baby in a Tutu".  This digi comes with two images, a baby crawling toward the viewer, and crawling away from the viewer.  I can see a lot of fun card designs using both together!
I printed the image twice, coloring the entire image once, and coloring just the upper body of Baby on the second.  I adhered the second with dimensional tape.  She really does look like she's moving toward you!
I embellished the face of the front with some K & Co Borders in pink and teal and added a teal feather behind Baby because, well, babies are so fluffy!! LOL

When my card is standing up on its easel, the soon-to-be-released digi "Always Do Your Own Thing" by artist Lynne Stansbery is showcased.
Aren't these little girls too precious?!  They look just like the girls in my daughter's ballet class (the one hanging upside down would be her cousin, Shenandoah)!  I used the same borders here too, cutting out the biggest butterfly from a leftover piece of it.

I decided to give the second digi image a dreamlike quality with torn edges because of the quote I snagged off of quotegarden.com.  It reads: "God gives us dreams a size too big so we can grow into them".
Which dreams have you grown into?  Do you ever dream of winning free digi's?  You have a chance this week with Squigglefly's color challenge--one random player who uses a Squigglefly digi image will win free digi's!  So strap on your dancing shoes and jete over to the their Challenge Blog for your turn in the spotlight!!

Pat I love the two of these images together - and they work so perfectly together with the quote! The dimension on the Baby In A Tutu is great! Fabulous job!
