It's Another Lily Pad Technique Challenge!

It's all about Texture at Lily Pad Cards for a challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

When I think of texture, I think of layers. Layers of color, layers of heat-embossed stamping, layers of paper and embellishments. Texture can also be added with embossing folders; I did consider that but nothing I had on hand was "floating my boat". So I got out some fun stamp sets that don't get used often enough, I rummaged through my stash for chipboard shapes to use as masks and lots of colorful sprays. Check out the Inlinkz collection at the end of this post for all the products used on this card.

Card Image is unavailable, I'm so sorry.

The only product that isn't still available (at least I couldn't find it online) is the frame. It's from a K&Company Photo Mat pad of embossed frames.

Make sure to hop on over to the Lily Pad Cards blog to see all the fabulous projects by the design team, as always they are amazing!

I'm keeping this post short and sweet as I'm still fighting what feels like the plague. The worst part is that it's keeping me from my adorable grandson and that's almost unbearable. Hubby and son have had it too, at least we've had company in our misery.

~  Hebrews 13:7 ~
Remember your leaders who taught you the Word of God.
Think of all the good that has come from their lives,
and follow the example of their faith.

I truly appreciate the godly lives and Bible teaching of these faithful men: Pastor Vic Elfstrum, Pastor Bob Kopeny, Pastor Bruce Sonnenberg, Pastor Chuck Smith and Pastor Greg Laurie. My life as a Christian has been enriched and set on the right course because they were faithful in sharing the Gospel and overseeing their flocks without compromise.
