Flocked card for a challenge for the Scrapbook Cafe.

I entered Scrapbook Cafe's flocking Sat challenge...see details on their blog here. This is what I came up with. I'm pretty happy since the deadline is Wednesday and I got the card done today...2 days early yeah! Of course it helped that I may see the lady who I made this card for tomorrow. ;) I used doodlebug's flocking I purchased from the Scrapbook cafe store. It is just wonderful! I used glue dots to flock the brads in the centers of the flowers. The sentiment are stickers that I turned backward (except for the S-since it would have been backward.) and applied flocking directly to the sticky side. I used an "O" sticker for the flocked faux eyelet. I also flocked the centers of some of the larger flowers on the patterned paper. The patterned paper is DCWV. The flowers are just ones I pulled out of my stash of silk flowers. I used fluid chalk to enhance the edges a bit. I also used Carrie Creations playful tags file. I did some haphazard doodling on this card....a first for me since I am such a perfectionist. However, I do think this is just what the card needed. Thanks for looking and reading! Shelly
