Thanks A Melon

Hi everyone! Today is card give away day. If you'd like to win this card along with a matching envelope, just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow random.org will pick a winner!

The card I have uses one of the soon to be released images from Squigglefly AND the image is from an artist brand new to Squigglefly! Susan Spiller drew this adorable little teddy bear.


(click to enlarge)

I colored this with copic markers and highlighted with some white gesso. the little dots on the scallops are also white gesso. I copied a layout that Kim used on her card here. Kim's card uses a new image that Nina Brackett drew for Squigglefly and it's just beautiful!

This is for the Squigglefly challenge to make a thank you card. If you enter this challenge you have a chance to win a prize and you get extra points if you actually send the thank you card to someone. I guess since I'm giving this card away it qualifies for an extra point! La La Land Crafts is also having the same challenge, so I'm entering it there as well. They are having a really nice blog candy for this challenge too, so why not enter?

The words are computer generated in a font called Juice and then I embossed the strip with the swiss dots folder. Isn't this little guy adorable? You're going to love Susan's other images too!

Hope you have a fantastic day, and thanks for stopping by!

Arrrh how cute is that? I love the spotty background of the embossing and the paper, it carries the spotty Mellon pips through the card beautifully.
