Add some Texture for the challenge at CCM

Afternoon All,
We have a wonderful new challenge over at CCM today, where Maike our host is asking you to Add Some Texture. That can be either embossing, heat or dry, texture paste, fabric, anything you like.
As I became a Great Auntie for the second time last week I decided to make a baby card to send to my niece and family.
I have used an embossing folder to create the textured background to my card.
It was coloured using a combination of Starlights, Sparkle Medium and Gilding Waxes all from Imagination Craft.
This has all helped to highlight the texture of the folder. I also sanded the edge of the card which added even more texture. 
The cute image is a LOTV topper which I fussy cut and layered onto a diecut and embossed oval.
The flowers and leaves were diecut from white card and then coloured using the same Imagination products. In fact all I did was spritz the sponge that I had used for the background with some water which created a nice pale, but matching colour on the diecuts.
The panel across the card was created using a border punch, some ribbon and tiny gems.
The sentiment is from a wonderfully useful set by Altenew Baby Zoo.stamped onto a die cut banner.
Of course I had to make a card for my Sister and her Hubby to congratulate them on the birth of their latest Grandchild.
More textured background, and die cut sentiment,
along with another LOTV topper. 
I hope that you will join us HERE this time, and that you will pop over and show the rest of the DT some love they have created some wonderful projects to inspire you.
Have a great evening. Happy Crafting and hugs
