Texture Challenge with The Crafty Pad

Super Sundays to you all! 

Tis' time for a new challenge at 

This week is one of my favorites!
And we want to see LOTS of it!

I could not resist adding heaps to my card today!  
Wanna peak before all the details?

 I got very creative today with some Crafty Pad Designs Digital images - Polly with flower, Beach Hut, Molly Cat with Birdhouse, Rainbow Sally and I added them all in to make this adorable scene that I colored with my watercolor pencils!  I love how it finished up and all came together! Not bad for my first attempt too!

There is lots going on in here! I wanted to bring Polly's flower really to life and added a 'real' flower over the image bloom, I added a dry embossing panel that has been inked as well into the layout, some feathers for some soft oh la la, some metal-like holey chain ribbon , some brads that I have changed their color with some heat embossing and added some glitter too and loads and loads of flowers!

I love this little beauty and she is off to Grandma for her Birthday! And I am sure she will treasure it as much as I do! 

This week we are being sponsored by our very own Lorraine from
