CCC#008 Cards Challenge: Terrific Texture

Greetings from a Cape Cod September! This is by far my favorite time of year, and we've already had some wonderfully perfect autumn days. Bright blue skies, crisp cool air... And this month's Card Challenge from Catherine and Cathy Create couldn't have been more perfect for how I'm feeling lately.

The Card Challenge this month is all about texture!! As summer winds down, I'm always a little sad because I'm just way too busy to enjoy all that summer offers in this beautiful place I call home. But at the same time, I can feel my soul craving sweaters and scarves, boots crunching through fallen leaves, a cup of tea by the wood stove... When it comes down to it, fall is the season of texture, isn't it? :) So let's get to the card, shall we?

I had so much fun layering on the texture with this project. Lots of layers! :) I started with the Chocolate Chip panel embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder. (I just wish I'd rotated it 180 degrees before I adhered it! All the cute knothole-like parts of the woodgrain are hidden.) Layers of the gorgeous Sweater Weather DSP, gorgeous burlap ribbon, and a cluster of buttons tied with rustic Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now make sure you visit Catherine and Cathy Create to see the other DT members' cards! You'll definitely be inspired, and you'll want to play along with the challenge too, because you could win some great Stampin' Up! goodies! :)

Have a great weekend. Happy Stampin'! :)
