Squigglefly Challenge 14, Card Giveaway, and News!

Hi everyone! I have some fun news to tell you, but first let's get to today's card because today is card giveaway day! If you'd like to have this card with a matching envelope sent to you, then just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow I'll have random.org pick a winner!

The card is one I made for the Squigglefly's 14th Challenge which is to use fall colors. I picked the autumn tree from the Seasonal Trees set


(click to enlarge)

It's colored with copics and chalks. The leaf background is a small leaf stamp from Paper Trey Ink and it's stamped with versamark. A copper ribbon is tied on the side and I used one of Martha Stewart's new border punches on the side of the image.
I didn't put a sentiment on it because I wanted to leave the option of the winner telling me what they'd like it to say.

Now for the news! You all know that this Friday night Squigglefly's Yahoo Group is going to have a big digi day event, well there is going to be a mini digi event at The Card Universe group to welcome Stef Hughes as the new group leader on Saturday at 7pm central! There will be a couple of light challenges and a chance to win some of the new images. I hope you can join us and help make Stef feel at home! Plus, this is good for those of you who might be busy on Friday!

Whatever you do today, I hope you have a great one! Thanks for looking!
