A Flurry of Texture!

Happy Monday, everyone! Yesterday was the 15th of the month, and that always means a new Dirty Dozen Gallery at Splitcoaststampers. If you aren't a SCS Fan Club Member, you are missing out on SO much eye candy and inspiration! Anyway, I was beyond thrilled to find out that my MFT Sister, Melody Rupple, is one of the two newest Dirty Dozen members! Woohoo, Melody!! The Fan Club can play along with the DD themes each month, and I couldn't resist this month's theme -- texture! This is my favorite time of year to add texture to my cards!

I used Flurry of Love, one of the new Pure Innocence sets from My Favorite Things, to create this card. *The PI sets have been SO popular, so this set is currently sold out, but it WILL be back in stock soon!*

Here are the ways I added texture to my card:
Cuttlebug snowflake background
Fun Flock (Lily White) on the trim of the hat, coat and boots
Stickles (Frosted Lace) on the snowflakes
Flower Soft (Polar White) on the ground
SU! Felt snowflakes
SU! Felt ribbon
Machine stitching

I also used MFT Adornments crystals and my snowflakes border punch. As you can see, I had a lot of fun adding all of the elements and creating some touchable texture! :)

Well, today is Anna's 8th birthday! I can't believe it! We're taking her out tonight, and we're celebrating with her grandparents on Wednesday. I have some gifts to wrap and a card to finish, so I'd better get busy! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have a great day!
