Squigglefly #58- Beautiful Blooms

Hope you're ready for a fresh new week!

Today is a new Squigglefly challenge! Last week we enjoyed Kim's Christmas in July. That was really fun, thinking of snow and happy holidays, just what was needed during our heatwave! But this week, I'm bringing you back to reality. Let's forget the heat and think about all the beauty summertime brings...all the beautiful blooms!

Squigglefly artist-Cheryl Alger
Stamps: Squigglefly (gentle friends)
Papers: SU! tangerine cs, K&Co dp
Ink: Copics & Prisma markers
Other: SU! olive ribbon, EK flower punch,
MME brad, CB embossing folder, MS leaf punch,
MS border punch, Stickles

This was such a fun image to color!! Though it would have been great for paper piecing too, hmm, next time!

I hope you'll grab your Squigglefly images and come play with us! Checkout the different ways some of the DT interpreted this challenge! Squigglefly Challenge #58
