A Squigglefly Recipe...

Happy Monday!
Are you ready to cook? Here are the ingredients you'll need for the Squigglefly Challenge this week; one (1) oval, one (1) square, some glitter and a ribbon! Easy peasy, right? Well, this really made me think, lol, but that's a good thing!

I'm not quite sure why I used this particular DP, then I had to use the passion pink...which is my least favorite among the SU! pinks, because it matched the DP! I do, however, like my SF butterfly fairy! I Pearl-EXed her wings so they sparkle and shimmer. I popped a leaf and added some swirls to add a little interest! And if that passion pink cs wasn't enough, I used passion pink pastels to shade around the oval...holy bolonga! I'll dedicate this one to my all my friends.....who love pinky-pink things! So there's my oval, a square, turned on it's side and some sparkle & ribbon! Mission accomplished! I hope you have a chance to play along with the Squiggleflies!

Maria, I would've thought that getting all the elements of the squigglefly challenge would have made it too hard to fit many more challenges in this card, but you managed to do it! I really love the swirls and the way you use one of them to anchor the sentiment. Really lovely card, and I can imagine the shimmer on the wings is fabulous in real life!
