It's all about the texture!

I used the October Hero Arts (HA) challenge sketch ideas for this card.  Too late to enter HA's challenge, but I had to try this sketch and decided something done with my new Spellbinders dies would spire me.  I chose cream colored card stock and the smallest die which I then stamped with this flower HA stamp from the Asian Fram set (CL275).  I clear embossed them and found left-over blue card stock to start planting my flowers. I mounted the blue panel onto the same cream card stock I used for the die-cuts.   Looks like a quilt to me.  Added the twine and 5 large pearls for interest.  The last pearl is hiding right under the bow, bottom right.   When I finished, I thought, wow, looks like there's a lot of texture there... ta-da... Lily Pad Cards, here's my entry for your wonderful texture challenge.  The sponsor is Simon Says Stamp - wonderful goodies at stake here.
