Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals at Squigglefly Challenge Blogspot have a super fun challenge.  So you need to grab a Squigglefly image and come on over.  Here is the other rule other than use a Squigglefly image:  Odd Man Out - make a card that uses elements or images in odd numbers

Three gems, one ribbon, a group of 3 flowers facing the dove.......all symbolic of the way to create a card front - using only odd numbers in the embellishments.  I found the following info on CARD MAKING 101 and try to faithfully follow the sage advice:

When placing your embellishments, it often helps to use the "Rule of Uneven Numbers". This rule states that using an odd number of embellishments (such as 1, 3, 5 or 7) is visually appealing and will give balance to your design. This might be one large Dazzles™ as the focal on a card, 3 brads along the edge of the card mat, or 5 small silk flowers as a border. The embellishments don’t have to be exactly the same, either: You can use an uneven number of similar embellishments to add impact—similar embellishments might be the same item but in a different color, material or size.

So the ball is in your card shop - grab an image and come on over and join us for some great fun and possibly free images for you!!!


  1. So beautiful and elegant. You have colored the image beautifully.

  2. Linda,
    Very pretty card! The DP is really lovely and your image is colored beautifully.

  3. Linda, this is just gorgeous! You have coloured the dove perfectly and love the rich colours you have used to compliment it! Nice exerpt that you included too about using odd numbers - I had heard that before too!

  4. Very pretty! I love the paper you used and the sponging you did on the edges.


Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a little love!
