Sweet Stop #SSS149 & SQUIGGLE FLY #10 Challenge

Using a  Cheryl Alger dig called That's One Big Flower..well I DID need an accent for my paper flower!...I followed both the recipe for Squiggle Fly week's challenge AND used a great place to get sketch ideas, the Sweet Stop, for my card layout.  With Squiggle Fly, you needed to use 1. Patterned paper, 2. a paperclip (shaped or otherwise), 3. a flower (any kind) and a Squiggle Fly digi image. I used the horizontal paper band as a "pocket" to slip the insert down at an angle.  The paper accordion flower has a disk with the image painted with copics.  There's a winged butterfly poised on the petals. Materials used: paper (My Mind's Eye & Deja View), Copper clip, ribbon, and assorted buttons(from my stash), stamped sentiment (Stampology), heavy brown cotton lace (JoAnn's), Baker's twine.

The wonderful thing about Sweet Stop challenges is that they like you to be creative with the "suggestions" of placements--like instead of flowers, I used buttons, instead of a circle die cut, I used a paper Flower.  They let your creative side go wild!  Their site has a vast library of very creative sketches in case you ever get stumped!
