Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge

One trend has become VERY noticeable in the paper-crafting industry in the past year: textured products! We have textured cardstock, embossing, fuzzy ribbons, fun flock, and lots of other products that make paper crafting fun to the touch! So this week we ask you: Why don't you reach out and touch....some textured products? (Diana Ross, anyone??) Limelight Papercrafts carries some gorgeous ribbons that are fuzzy, silky, and smooth. Or if that doesn't appeal to you, how about Fun Flock in 9 fun colors!? What about the new Core'dinations textured cardstock? If it's got texture, use it! If you don't have anything from Limelight, that's ok! Use what you do have!

Details:
*Sketch and Product Challenge with a focus on textured products.
*Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC012.
*Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on Mandy's blog. All entries must be submitted by Sunday, January 11th , at midnight to win a Coredinations Chocolate Box paper pack!
Sketch:

My sample: yes, mine is different because I cut my paper wrong. Tell me I'm not the only one that does that when cutting on a diagonal!

Anyway, I used the set Giggle Grove by Unity, available at Limelight. This set has been on my "to get" list for a very long time, and I was finally able to get this month. I started by stamping the tree on scrap paper and cutting out the inside to make a reverse mask. I then put the mask on a piece of Coredinations Chocolate Box Pistachio Nut cardstock and using sandpaper to remove the chocolate "top", revealing the green underneath. I then stamped the tree over it (using my SAMJ) in versamark and embossing in white. I stamped the birdie on Bittersweet patterned paper and cut her out. The hearts on the tree are from Limitless Limbs, cut out and adhered. The sentiment is from Lily and Tweet. I finished off the card with a Bittersweet button and a rose pearl.

Thanks for stopping by, don't miss what the rest of the team made!
