Basket of blooms



Yesterday, I was able to spend the afternoon with my best buddy, Patricia. We did our craft store run. We hit JoAnnes, A.C. Moore and Michaels with all our coupons. JoAnnes had something I wasn't familar with. ek tools has a selection of textured sheets for punches. I had to have the natural texture sheets, which were a variety of natural woven sheets. 

Well low and behold Addicted to CAS was having a challenge using texture. I knew I had to use my texture sheets! Impression Obsession has a basket die that was perfect to use. I die cut the basket from the woven sheets and filled it with die cut flowers and leaves from Paper Smooches Reflections stamp set. I added more texture by embossing the base card and adding a twine bow.

Less is More is hosting a challenge using dies, so what the hay- I am entering this there also!

What a fun card for two fun challenges!
