Squigglefly Challenge #9


Good evening, hope all is well with you. This post is for the Squigglefly Challenge #9. Kim was in charge of the challenge this week, and let me tell you it is a doozy!!! She gave us the challenge of making a one layer card with only one embellishment(holy cow)! I don't know if I've ever made a one layer card, so this was definitely a challenge for me. I decided to use a sentiment which did make it a little bit easier. The sentiment is of course from Squigglefly, and called "bee happy". I just inserted it into microsoft office and from there could re size it. I colored with my copics and added some polka dots to the word "happy" with my gel pen. I added stickles to the wings and along the trail of the bee. I finished it off with some polka dot ribbon with knots on each end. The ribbon is from Michael's. So if you really like challenges I suggest you try this one. Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful evening!
