Squigglefly's Digi Days Challenges

Squigglefly has just released a bunch of fun new images perfect for the upcoming holidays! I've got my eye on the Sara in Love image ~ it is too cute! On Friday "Digi Day" was on SF's yahoo group and then yesterday it was on SF's SNR Card Universe group. There were 5 challenges in all, and I could only get around to 3 of them.

The first challenge was to create a card and get the most points using this point scale:
10 points - use a Squigglefly image
5 points - use a Squigglefly saying/sentiment
5 points - use the color blue
5 points - use the color purple
5 points - put a tag on the card
5 points - use a flower/embellishment

I hit them all with this card.

The next challenge was to use the colors Black, Orange, Purple and Glitter. Well to me that says Halloween, well in this case Howloween.....
I don't have any Halloween images from Squigglefly, so I improvised and used the owl from the Shared Friendship image. Notice that drippy goo punched paper? My Michael's had them and quite promptly sold out, but I was told they were getting another shipment in and I finally got one of these ~ it only took a year. Hopefully I'll get just as lucky with that lace heart punch for Valentine's Day.

The last challenge I completed was to use the colors Green, Red and Gold. So of course I thought of Christmas and came up with this:

I colored the lighter colors of his fur with a white gel pen to add a bit of texture and after it was dry, I then colored over the top of it with my E31 copic). The bells on his collar are colored in with a gold gel pen. I would have loved to add a few real jingle bells to this card, but can't seem to find them at the moment (I know I have some somewhere....). The layout of this card may look familiar to you, since it is from a card I shared a bit a go, but I really love this layout. I wrapped gold cording around the larger panels to look like presents. Slowly but surely I am getting some of my holiday cards out of the way.

Jodi, I love each of your cards so much that I can't pick a favorite! I'll tell you my favorite thing about each one though! On your first card I love the color combination and it's sweet how you have the little flowers on either side of the tag. Your second card I think it's fabulous how you used the owl from the Sara image to make a Halloween card! The pumpkin border is cool!
Your last card is such a classic looking Christmas card. The coloring on the reindeer is fantastic! Thanks for sharing how you did the texture on his fur.
Thanks for playing in the digi day fun!
