7 Kids College Fund Challege #24 - Make it Fluffy

Happy Wednesday!

Summer is here, and it is hot, hot, hot! I hope you were able to join our summer challenge last week. If not, we have another fun challenge for you this week. Our challenge is "Make it Fluffy." We want you to use flock, suede, flower soft, felt, or something else that makes it fluffy. Use your imagination and show us what you come up with. And don't forget to use a stamp that 7 Kids carries to be eligible for the prize. 

Here is my card...

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund... 

This is a perfect representation of my husband and my daughter. They LOVE to go fishing!!! So, I am in love with these stamps. I am quite certain they will get a lot of use.

This is where my fluffy element comes in. I used flock on my cattails. The cattails are actually made with polymer clay, a toothpick, glue, and brown flock. I mixed them in with some seed grass to give the feel of being at the lake.

What fishing trip is complete without a dragonfly?

I used the June sketch for the CLP Challege and will be entering the card in their challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now, go make it fluffy!
