Fun Foam?

Hi!  PTI is having their Make It Monday challenge to use fun foam.  I thought I'd give fun foam a try.  I couldn't find any pretty colors of fun foam in my kids' stash and I told myself I wasn't going to buy it just to do this challenge but I so happened to be at Ben Franklin and bought just one sheet of pink fun foam.  I didn't even really know what I wanted to make.  Just wanted the pink one!  I had my doubts too about using fun foam.  Like it's good for kids' crafts but I couldn't really imagine it being sophisticated, you know?  The good thing is that it cuts so nicely.  You really could make a lot of cute die cuts for kids to craft with.

Anyway, I used Delightful Dahlia stamp set and dies to create the card above.  The leaves are die cut with PTI felt and stamped too.  The dahlia is stamped in raspberry fizz and cardstock is hibiscus burst.  I really need to expand my color combo choices. 

Just a close up photo.  Yeah, I still have my doubts about fun foam.  Pearls and fun foam?  I don't know if I'm totally loving it.

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

I thought the same thing about the foam, but at least you did it. And your card is beautiful! Love the pink and your stamping of the flowers in the background, too.
