"Add a Touch of Texture" Challenge

 Here is the finished product first.....
 A side view for you....
 A close up of the pocket....
Near the end and some of the mess....

This card is for the MFT guest designer challenge for July and the challenge is to "add a touch of texture" to your stamped creation. I had just got the Pretty Pocket set in the mail and the Inspired by Flowers sets..... so a bit of combining stamp sets and many die-namics this is what I came up with. I cut the pocket with the die-namic that comes with the stamp set using Tim Holtz co-ordinations paper and then embossed it with a cuttlebug folder and sanded it to get the "jean" pocket look (texture). The daisy is made of felt (texture) and has a pearl center. The ribbon I picked up in Victoria and it has lots of "texture" too. The butterflies have rhinestones for their bodies - "texture" of a different kind.... Anyways after I made a huge mess in my room making this card I was kind of happy with the end result and hope you like it too :)

Here are the details on what I used for this card and yes you can find all the wonderful My Favorite Thing products on their on line store and also many of them at Scrapbooker's Paradise in Calgary!!
