The TALL and SHORT of it--new Challenge at Squigglefly!

When I first saw this beautiful digital called Rose Wreath by Pammie Lehto , a new artist at Squigglefly, it just seemed like it should be on a door, like a Welcome to those that enter.  And, I wanted to didn't want to do the traditional colors like red or pink, but sunny yellow!

Well this week at Squigglefly, our challenge is "The Long and Short of it" and the DOOR works very well with the TALL of this challenge!  I made this card tall to fit into a regular letter size envelope, out of burgundy cardstock.  Then used a gray brick embossed card front to simulate a brick building. I hung the wreath with foam dots and then used a matted oval (sort-of like a door mat).  The SHORT part of the challenge are 2 short pieces of chevron ribbon in gray and yellow done with a fishtail cut that stick out of the mat.

So hurry on over to Squigglefly and join in our fun-it's a great way to win a digital image of your choice our of the shop!  There are so many talented artists there you'd be amazed!  See you there!
