AFSS25 Dare to be Fabulous

One of the blogs that I visit regularly is Stampin' When I Can. Allison started Suggestive Sunday's a while ago but this is the first one that I have participated in. This week's challenge is Words, Words, Words... The challenge this week is for the sentiment to be the only stamped image on the page. The card I created is not the one that I had first envisioned. I stated off with Ginger Blossoms DP and Close to Cocoa cardstock. I went looking for another DP and found one that I really liked in the Prints Sampler, but it didn't look right with the Ginger Blossom paper that I had. Then I had my aha moment. Last month at the monthly crop I go to we had a field trip to the LSS and I found crushed velvet flock by doodlebug design inc. The single butterfly on the 6 x 6 page just screamed flock me please. So I did. I also flocked the sentiment Dare to be Fabulous and I think the flocking does just that. The pictures do not do this card justice but the flocking is just not showing up real well. The flocking is pink almost like Regal Rose. I love the way it feels and I so wish you all could see it the way I do.

Here is a close up of the sentiment (sorry it's blurry). In the lower right hand corner you can also see the butterfly that got flocked as well.

Please visit Allison's blog to read more about Suggestive Sunday's and see the other really cool stuff that she posts.

Love the idea of torn DP here Robyn! And that stamp is perfect all on its own! Thanks for playing!

BTW, when you take your pictures, do you set your camera to macro (the little flower)? If you do, that should get rid of the blurry images.
