Ok for digi girls to play with texture in the background, too?

Can do a card with texture or is it specifically a layout?

Here is mine. I don't know if you can see it well at all, but the pp is textured and I also embossed the title. I added a second picture of it closer up, but still don't think it is showing well. The little pic beside the big picture, just shows that I had some hidden journaling on this one. I don't usually hide journaling, but this journaling just talks about how awful Jamie was about taking these pics Smile

That is really cute! I like it. I have layouts like that though, where I do them for a challenge and then really just don't like them. In fact, when dh got home from work today, I showed him the one I did for this challenge and said "I did this for a texture challenge, but.. eh, its not really my favorite at all". lol. I don't like the dragonfly on it ( LOVE the dragonfly, just don't like it on this layout), I am not one for putting very many real embellishments and things on my layouts, so it just looks off to me. I have been trying lately to use more, but it really is outside my box.

Angie - that looks really cool! love how you embossed the letters. I tried embossing letters, but I think it tends to work better with big letters (as your layout proves).

Carrie - that looks neat! I really love how you tore your papers.

I finally got this done yesterday ... I used a collection of handmade papers I had lying around. I tore the edges to give even more texture, and I really like the overall effect.

Yep...preggo again...

Tried to use textured background papers and elements (glittery stars/glitter on the carriage). Let me know if this doesn't work for this challenge!
