Friendly Hello

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is:  Add or Show Texture
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I really had fun adding a lot of texture to this one.  The background is a piece of burlap that I adhered to a piece of yellow patterned paper.  The ribbon is a nice twill which has texture to it and I added stickles to the center of both the punched flowers and the image flower for some sparkly texture.  I also added a layer of mulberry paper as a second mat behind my focal image.  And I showed texture by adding some colored pencil fur to my cute, little bear.  You can see both that texture and the sparkle of the stickles in the photo below.
I just LOVE how this turned out; it is so adorable!!!  And I know just who I am going to send it to; now to just get it in the mail.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Gorgeous card, Heather - the hessian background is just right for this adorable little bear and a fun way of adding texture. I love the way you've echoed the sunflowers and the ladybird from the image. The whole card says sunshine - bring it on ...!!!
