Double D - TAN Neutrals with Texture

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is our hostess today and her theme of choice is:

TAN Neutrals with Texture
( touches of black or white are acceptable)

Check out this beautiful mood board she has created to inspire us!


I'm SO GLAD Diane came up with this theme because it prompted me to finally remember I have some fabulous DCWV paper pads that have texture like burlap, corrugated, woven ... I even had cork that I could have used ... wow, what fun!!
Here's what I came up with . . .

What a fun card to create!
Obviously I was inspired by the textured flowers, so that was my starting point!  
My main textures came from the DCWV 'burlap' 6x6 page that I die cut my Spellbinder 'Blooms 3' flowers from and the woven background panel from another DCWV 'woven' 6x6 paper pad.


After die cutting the flowers from the burlap paper, I decided to sponge the edges with Tim Holtz 'frayed burlap' distress ink to add a little more dimension.  I've used a drop of Nuvo 'Copper Penny' crystal drops for the flower centers.
I love how all the stitching & piercing came together too ... 
Very happy with today's card and I think it could be used for a man or a woman!
