A Spoon Full of Sugar - challenge #146 - tons of texture

Tuesday morning and time for another challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar and this time around we are looking for texture on your cards - at least two different types of texture.

I have a colleague at work who has just been in hospital for an operation on her foot and I have made this card for us all to sign and send on to her to try to cheer her up a bit while she is at home for the next 6 weeks not being able to put any pressure on her foot. The image is from the Paper Shelter and I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but the textures that I have used are glittered papers, glossy accents on the eyes and nose and the papers of the flowers, metal centre in the flowers and I have also added a bit of stickles to the brads in the centre of the flowers.

You can check out the challenge here and also take a peek at the gorgeous cards from the DT.

The sketch that I have followed is the current one at The Pixie Cottage and I am also entering this card at Allsorts challenge where the theme is blooming blossoms and at The paper shelter challenge where they are looking for "inspired by" - I am inspired by many people, but this card in particular is inspired by Bev who loves to use layers, flowers and charms and metal embelishments on her cards.

Have fun.
