Pattern and Texture

Hi Everyone,
I love the mixture of patterns from embossing to the patterns on the paper.
Embellishments like bling, buttons and Martha Stewart Heirloom Clay Molds
I love making cards and some of my favorite things to give them is texture by using embossing folders to embossing tools to give the flower petals and leaves dimension, using different animal print patterns together, bling, buttons and fun embellishments that I get to make by hand like the Martha Stewart Heirloom clay mold forms/circle frame. I love making my own flowers I get pleasure in that I get to bend ,squash, use embossing tools to form its beautiful shape.
This card I am sharing will be for one of my dear friends. Also it finally hit me I have not shown you how I decorate the inside of my cards. And today this is how this one was decorated.
I love giving that extra special touch to the inside of my cards too.
These are some of the tools I used to make the embellishments. The ribbons are made of fabric one being burlap. As you can see on the card I glued the zebra pattern ribbon on top of the burlap. It gave such a prettier setting and texture on the card since I did not use any other paper for a background. I did emboss the card with one of Anna Griffins new Cuttlebug Embossing folders.
I am submitting this card to several Blog Challenges:
Until Next Time this Shabby Chic Grannie is out.
Be safe and have fun creating.
