Even though I haven't been stamping for the last little while, doesn't mean I took a break from buying ;) I had this cute new birthday stamp (from Your Next Stamp) as well as some new 6 x 6 My Mind's Eye paper pads just waiting to be played with.
This week's challenge on the Your Next Stamp challenge blog was to use texture in your design. So I dug out my Cuttlebug (literally had to DIG it out from the bottom of the closet that was packed for our home staging!!) and my embossing folders and got to work. I also added texture by adhering some of the images with dimensional tape and added some 3D ribbon and twine. For the sentiment I decided to try out some of the new SRM sentiment stickers I purchased. I was able to tint the "girl" part of the sticker to match my design.
O.K, enough chatting....now onto my card.......
