Dare to be Fabulous!

Hello,

This afternoon I was browsing blogland and saw the sketch at Can You CASE it? and suddenly I had an idea for using this with the challenge at Colour Q.

I flipped the sketch and made this:


I heat embossed this flower and stem in black and added the enamel dot for my one spot of colour for ColourQ. I really wanted to add a few more enamel dots but wanted to challenge myself to keeping to the 'one' spot of colour. 

When I was making this I kept thinking, why are you making a black flower? I decided I was being daring and then this thought led me to this sentiment. I have a few friends who I know this will be perfect for!!

I used this stamp earlier in the week and quite a few people have asked me where it is from-here is the store link:

I will enter this also into:
