7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Texture

Happy Wednesday! 

It's time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge. Our challenge this week is "Texturize It." We want to see you use what you can to add texture to your card. Here is my card...

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

Stamps: Christmas Morning Tilda (Unfortunately not currently in the store, but check out all the other cute Magnolia images)

I tried coloring to reflect the color of the light off her dress and the background.

I added some texture with an embossing folder, used this texture to create a tag, and tucked it behind the image.

I included more textures in my flowers with the berries, leaves and flowers.

I want to give credit where credit is due. The sketch I used is from Hanna's Hobbyblog. Hanna has some gorgeous sketches on her side bar. They are great when you get layout block.

I am entering this card in Papertake Weekly - Getting Cute!
