Flocking & a peek

For the first time in a few weeks I was able to do the Saturday Night Challenge. We had to do some flocking for the challenge. Well, it just happens that I started playing with flock last month and think it is really fun. So, I kept with the "Frosty" feel of Christmas in July, but my card is more of a Love/Valentine. I started out with a plain white notecard from Creative Cafe ( I picked up a pack of these cards a few months ago at the Scrapbook Cafe and I love them...they have a slight ribbed texture), I chose a plain chipboard snowflake from the pack of BasicGrey holiday chipboard I had out from this month's DT project, a small chipboard heart, a small scrap of black cardstock, and some ribbon from my stash.

I flocked the snowflake white and added a thin black flocked border around my block as a frame. The chipboard heart was covered in "burgundy" Stickles.

This is what I came up with:

on the inside it says: "you warm my heart"

So it's a bit on the simple side, but the challenge is done. I was feelling kinda bad about not participating lately.

Now on to Coordinates far I have 2 layouts done with my August kit and a few more ideas brewing. I promised a little sneek so here it is:

Stay tuned for more peeks here or on the CC MB. Probably tomorrow a sneek peek thread will be started. Some times we can't help but to tease :wink:

Ugh, Jen! I haven't started yet! I pulled everything out last night and pulled out some pictures, but that's as far as I've gotten. I should have some time tomorrow. I think I'm over thinking it... :)

I love it, It's like the little black dress with pearls. You can't go wrong with that.

I really like the black and white color scheme on this - very nice! Glad you were able to play this week!
