All About Texture

Today's card is all about texture. I started with my new pom pom trim, added some textured cardstock, dry embossed the gray layer, and finished it with a corduroy brad. The layout is based on this week's CPS sketch.

Paper: Basic Gray, Pixie Pink textured, Pink Passion textured, Bazzill white
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Nestabilities scalloped circles, trim (Webster's Pages), brad & rub-on (SU), corner rounder punch
