Touchy feely...


I love texture, so when I saw Creative Card Crews challenge #4 asking for texture, I knew this was for me! I really had envisioned using lots of embossing folders and such but my card seemed to go in a whole different direction.
This is a common recurrence with me, I am making a card somethings not quite right but rather than nixing my entire effort I usually cut the card in half using it as my focal and going from there.
For this card I used Close To My Heart Stamps and white and Cocoa card stock, the patterned paper is by K & CoMPANY, all the metal embellishments are by We R Memory Keepers and last but not least Liquid Applique a Marvy product.
