Neutrals With Texture

A new challenge begins at Double D Challenges today and the theme is
Tan Neutrals With Texture and the mood board below for inspiration.



I came up with an easy and fun card with lots of texture.


I used an embossing folder (the same as one of the ones we are giving away as a prize)
for texture for the base of my card.
I also added a binding ribbon similar to the one on the mood board,
sent to me from my friend  (and former DT member at DD) 'Ros'.
I actually put this mood board together last year  
(we create them a year in advance)
when I received this from her...pretty cool!


I added a few Cheery Lynn Design Fish Tail banners, one of which I stamped the sentiment on,
a few leaves (Gentle Leaves Poppy Stamps, sisal bow (for more texture)
and a handmade sunflower (Cheery Lynn Designs) with the flower center adding even more texture!

Want to see some gorgeous and inspiring cards?
Then head on over to the Double D Challenges 
as you will be blown away once again by what the DT has created!

The Cheery Lynn fiah tail banners are perfect in this design. I love how you used the pp and just cream color for the sentiment. The flower looks great in a different shade of cream. Gorgeous card.

LOVE all the texture here, with the die cuts and the embossed background. I have that embossing folder and it's one of my go-tos. Your colors are just beautiful and that flower is perfect. I also LOVE those banners. I must look into those, I really liked the scalloped edge.
