First 2012 Squigglefly Challenge

Another year of fantastic challenges from one of my fave companies, Squigglefly.  The first challenge of the year is a simple Thank you card, using a Squigglefly image. 

Closed Card
 My card is a Z-Fold card with a slanting top.  I love the versatility of this card, and it is so easy to make!   Just take an 8.5x11" piece of cardstock, and instead of cutting it in half with your paper trimmer, use scissors or rip it in on a slant, so that when you make the Z-fold, the top of the card looks like it is slanting upwards.  Then embellishment your inclining top with stamps, images or anything you have on hand.  I took some leftover pieces of patterned paper and cut out the musical notes.  That theme fits the cha-cha-ing turtle as he dances his gratitude dance!
 As some of you know, I design for Squigglefly, and I have to tell you the January new releases came out on Saturday and you better break into your piggy bank!  There are some awesome images.
The image I used here isn't one of the new ones, but you can still purchase this ChaCha Turtle digi image by Mark Hicks from Squigglefly HERE.

Open card
 I love using digital images because of the many different ways you can use them.  As you can see with the card open, I not only printed the image in two different sizes, but printed each facing opposite ways!  You get the turtle facing both ways, plus the sentiment ChaChaCha.

So start you new year out by crafting a card for Squigglefly's Challenge Blog, for a chance to win this image or any of your choice!  Don't have one yet?  Catch a freebie HERE.
