Cheers...where everybody knows your name..

So are you singing along with me? Isn't it funny when a song gets stuck in your head? This card was made for a dear friend of mine (no, her name isn't Norm ;))
There are lots of goodies on this card and I just kept finding more and more things to try! Don't you love that? I know you crafties out there totally know what I am talking about. hee hee So a couple cool things to note...The scalloped square was stamped with the SU! cheers to you stamp and then made 3-D with a nice coat of crystal effects. I used the classic ink (not waterproof) so the crystal effects did make the image a little fuzzy but still overall a neat look so I went with it. Also, I broke out the flock for a trial run on the flower stem. I free handed a stem with Scotch tacky adhesive (this is my go to liquid glue) and then shook on the green flock. I had to let it dry (which is challenging for me) but once it was, it added a cool 3-d touchable aspect to the card. One thing I noted is that the flock is not as deeply colored when applied as it is when it's all smashed into a jar. Probably best applied to a stamped image or cardstock of the same color as the flock to get the richest look.
Other items used:
paper: KI memories
punch: SU! square scallop and scallop edge
ink: SU!
flock: Fun Flock by stampendous
other: buttons, ribbon and chipboard flower and frame

Lovin' all the patterns. (definitely a challenge for me!!) And I thought that stem was a piece of yarn at first. Has a great fuzzy look...after reading, now I know why! As always, having fun checking out your new fun creations! :>:>
