Texture in the Limelight

I made this card for the Limelight sketch challenge this week. We were also challenged to incorporate textured products into our design.

I started with Core'dinations Strawberries-n-Cream cardstock, embossed it, then sanded it. I LOVE this stuff! You can sand, tear, or antique the cardstock to reveal a core color inside.
I also used this fun flower embellishment from American Crafts made of felt, foam, and faux leather to add even more texture. I added some simple stamping to finish it off.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs (SU), Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Whisper White, PTI Berry Sorbet & Sweet Blush, Core'dinations Strawberries-n-Cream
Ink: Pretty in Pink, PTI Berry Sorbet
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, sanding block, flower embellishment (American Crafts)
