I Wanna Be Your Shotgun Rider

Hi everyone! Today is card giveaway day and the card I made is one for the Squigglefly challenge this week which is to make a card using any Squigglefly image and the colors pink and blue. Plus, if you go to the card universe group here you can get the same image I used for free!

If you play along with the challenge and enter your card on Mr. Linky you could win two free images, so what's stopping you? It really can't get any easier than this.

Here's the card I made

(click to enlarge)

I colored it with copic markers and then added some stickles to the snail. The embossing on the card base was made with a new embossing folder from Quick Kutz. I thought the pattern looked a bit like the turtle's shell. At the last minute I added some googly eyes, but I'm not sure that that's where eyes are on snails! Oh well, I think they look cute there!

I printed the words out on my computer and then punched it out with an oval punch. If you're a fan of country music you might recognize the words from a Tim McGraw and Faith Hill song. I think it fits this image perfectly though, and wouldn't it make a cute Valentine sentiment?

I always like to include an envelope that goes with the card, especially when it's for a card give away. I thought I'd show you the envelope this time.

I cropped the little snail off of the Shy Bear Snail Mail image and printed it out on the corner of the envelope. Just a little bit of stickles on his shell too. Isn't it cute?
If you'd like to win this card along with the matching envelope just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow will pick a winner!

Have a fabulous day, and thanks for looking!
