SFC85 - Squigglefly Monday Challenge

It's that time again for our Squigglefly MONDAY Challenge.

Come on over and join us for a non-traditional Valentine's Day Challenge - NO PINKS and NO REDS. The main color of choice today is Purple. Also use paper piecing, hearts and whatever else your heart desires. The Challenge details are posted on the blog starting Monday at 7am CST. It is very difficult to stay away from reds and pinks, so grab your crafty and creative thinking caps and join in!

I choose to use the image
ALMOST A PRINCE. As soon as I saw this image I fell in love with it, and just HAD to have it. I'm not sure about the rest you, but I have kissed a lots of frogs in my day hoping for a prince lol. This image is so awesome, it brings back childhood memories of princesses and fairy tales. It's Magical!

I paper pieced her dress using a solid purple paper, but added white flowers with my white Signo gel pen. I also added Stickles on the frog, his crown and her lovely star wand. I just can't seem to make a card these days without using Stickles. I'm addicted to glitter as it runs threw my blood for sure. When I cough - glitter pops out .....just teasing :) I darkened the below photo so you can see the real beauty of the sparkle and glitter this image has.

I also used another favorite item of mine - cork paper. This stuff is amazing and really matches with any project you are doing. It just seems to go perfectly with everything! I cut the hearts out using my new MFT die-namics HEARTS OF PLENTY, yet another addiction. I can not make a card without using some sort of Die-namics die lol. These things rock, and are a must have if you haven't tried them yet. They seem to cut threw anything - including my thick cork paper.

I also used my MFT die-namics as a border for the lower half of the card. Both the Jumbo Scallop and Open Scallop. I finished it all off with a heart button and some matching twine.

Now all we need is for that Magical Prince to appear :)

Also just some informational things going on at Squigglefly. We are currently raising money for Lucky the cat. She needs a serious operation and for the whole month of February any feline stamps purchased at Squigglefly will help Lucky out. ALL proceeds will go to Lucky. You can read about Lucky HERE.

This darling cat need us, so it's a perfect time to purchase up some stamps that feature cats over at Squigglefly. I myslef have 3 cats and I don't know what I would do if this happened to one of my babies. The site is constantly giving us updates on Lucky, so take a peak if you can.

Wonderful card! I love the look of the cork paper. I think I still have some from a purchase I made years ago and you've inspired me to pull it out. I think the challenge was paper piercing, but your piecing is wonderful! Great job on the white stars you drew in with the gel pen.

What a cute card. Love the image. Is that real cork, or is it paper? Looks great.
