Ride, Sally, Ride

All aboard for a sleepover!  That's the theme of my card today for this week's Squigglefly challenge.  Their requirement is to use a Squigglefly image and use the color PINK plus your favorite "go with" color--is it pink and brown?  pink and teal?

I like to use pink and GREEN together, and thought these September new releases from Cheryl Alger would be perfect.  The one on the front of my Z-fold card is one of two images called Pack Your Bag Sally.  Sally is one of my favorite character images from Cheryl (difficult to pin down to just one).  The second image is one of a suitcase, which I covered with words to make a kind of collage on its front.

I covered the faces of my card with green and pink patterned papers (you can't see the pink panel).  I colored Sally with Copics after paper-piecing her with yet more pink patterned paper.  I embellished simply with Skittles and a charm.

I plan to invite my granddaughters over for a sleepover this weekend, and made two cards for each of them as invitations.  I find that it's very easy to make two of each card at one time.

Gotta pop these in the mail so that they get them before Saturday, although mom and dad have been notified already and are keeping it a secret.  When we get together, just us girls, we craft to our hearts' delight!

So now it's your turn to craft to your heart's delight using a Squigglefly digi image and the colors PINK and ???  What, you don't have a Squigglefly digi image yet?!  Click HERE for freebies.  Then go to the Challenge Blog and enter to win free digis from the store!!  Good luck, and happy crafting!
