Squiggley Challenge #75 & Autumn Memory

Hi all! Hope your week is off to a great start. We are having a couple of warm days here in the Bay Area. I think today is supposed to be in the 70s, but it's going to drop something like 10 or 20 degrees tomorrow. Crazy! Hope you all are staying warm, cozy and healthy wherever you are! =)

On to today's cards...


I made this card for Challenge #75 over at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.


The challenge is to use ONLY a Squigglefly digital sentiment stamp for your card. Nina Brackett's lovely Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life is perfect for this challenge. The patterned paper is from the yummy Life is Good collection by Echo Park. I love this pretty and girly collection!


I used lovely images from Chi Chi Memory's Autumn Memory Collection for my second card. I set the adorable girl on the wooden fence before I printed the image out.


After coloring it, I cut the image using a circle die and inked the image with scattered straw when the paper was still in the die. The sentiment tag is made the same way.


The patterned paper is from Sassafras' Indian Summer collection. The doily thing-y is cut using a Spellbinders die.

That' all for today. Hope your day is fantastic! =)

I think both of these are wondeful, but I especially love the first one, and how you have matched the flower with the pp - clever you! ;)
