Snail Mail image for Squiggle Fly's RECIPE Challenge

As always on the first Saturday of the month, Squiggle Fly launches some new digital Images and there is a really FUN artist among those!  Gayle Seach has some darling whimsical images and some extremely detailed images perfect for those hard to make masculine cards.  The set I'm working with today includes many creatures like my snail, frog, bumblebee, dragon fly, just to name a few.
The challenge for Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals team was to use this RECIPE on your card: a button, a flower, and a circle.  I thought about putting the button in the middle of the snail but, I didn't want to cover up her image details!  The background paper is a great glossy embossed Tree/forest paper (sorry for the glare on my picture) and it reminded me of a snail's home!
We have a new challenge every Monday~Play along with the Design Team and show everyone you are up to the Challenge!  It's easy to play along!  You can use any image to play, but to be eligible for the prize you must use a Squigglefly image.  You can use the shop at their site or grab a freebie.  If you're the winner you get to choose any SF image (including the sets)!  See you there!
