Creative cottage Challenge # 19 Touchy feely


Good morning to y'all hope you are well and that you have got sunshine where you are - It's scorching here and we've seen no rain although plenty has been promised from the weather man !

So it is wednesday and of course that means that it is time for the Creative cottage challenge. This week was the very talented Becky's choice and she has chosen the theme "touchy feely" and wants to see lots of texture on your cards.

I quite enjoyed this one and went out of my comfort zone to create a new card shape (new for me - that is) there is a fab tutorial here if you want to try one.
I have used papers from the creative cottage kits Sunny days and Summer mornings paper packs for my card which I embossed with my cuttlebug swiss dots folder and my bigshot and inked the edges with some brown ink for a worn grungy look and added some rafia and stickles for more texture.

It was actually a very simple card to make as all you need is a few extra embelishments (these are from the Daisy chain farm kit) once the paper is on and a sentiment or two and bobs your uncle !

I hope you like it - pop over to the Creative cottage challenge blog to see the other fab DT creations and get loads more inspiration.

Thanks for looking and leaving comments, I love to read your feedback x

Your card is eye-popping. It just jumps out at you. The colors are great together. I saw it over at Creative Cottage, and was going to get back to comment, but didn't make it yet. But I did want you to know that it really is beautiful.
