It's all about TEXTURE at Delightful Sketches and Challenges

Hello my Friends!
Are you ready for another fabulous challenge? Our new challenge over at Delightful Sketches and Challenges is all about

I chose to use my buddy "Patriotic Ridley" (love this adorable raccoon) and the USA sentiment available at the Digital Delights digi store. I wanted to use as much texture as i could so i used my crimper to create the background on my card. I also used some red glitter paper to mat my USA sentiment. I added some glitter to Ridley's hat and used sugar coated doodlbug brads in red, white and blue. I finished it off with some organdy ribbon. The flag that Ridley is holding is a cardstock sticker i found on one of my Fourth of July sticker sheets. I tried to bend it a little to give it a look like it was waving in the air.
Our sponsor for the Texture Challenge is non other than the fabulous Simon Says Stamp!!

I hope you will join us for another fun challenge and be sure to check out the Delightful Sketches Challenge blog to see all the fabulous creations the Delightful Divas made for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!!!
