Tempting Texture

The challenge this week at Fab N Funky is Tempting Texture...something that just makes you want to reach out and touch. I completely and utterly forgot what the challenge was and finished my entire card only to realize I had NO texture. Ack! Luckily I was able to peel my layers apart and throw a few through the Cuttlebug. I love embossing folders - they just add that nice touch of texture without being too showy or in your face, and they added the finishing touch to my cute Valentine's card.
I used this cute penguin from our sponsor this week - Robyn's Digital Fetish and coloured him red for Valentine's Day. Then I added a stamp from There She Goes to finish it off, I've had the stamp set for awhile and never used it, shame!
Whole bunch of challenges going on, hope I got them all cause my $1.50 bottle of knock off Stickles exploded all over my notes last night. Guess you get what you pay for!
