Delicious Doodles - lots of texture

Good morning!  The challenge over at Delicious Doodles this week is to use lots of texture.  I had absolutely came to a stop on this one until I saw a new home notelet set that CG had on her site.  She had embossed the box the set was, I left a message to say thanks for the inspiration and happily ran off to errrr nick the idea!  Then I sat down and altered a notebook!!!

I ran it through the big shot with a Stampin Up embossing folder, chalked the raised bits, added glossy accents.  I then looked at my table and spotted the felt butterflies - happy days!  A bit of glitter later and I ended up with this.  Oooo the felt butterflies were a Stampin Up embosslit.  Felt works wonderfully with these (the embossing doesnt show up, but I really just wanted the shape).  I than sat down feeling virtuous that I had done the challenge (been a bit dry for challenges lately) - and noticed I hadnt even included a Delicious Doodles image!  Sorry Teri!!!  Lolx

I would also like to enter this in the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown wanted us to make our own embellishments
Flutterby Wednesdays wanted to see butterflies
Truly Scrumptious wanted to see some summer sparkle (it is on there, honest! the centres of the flowers and on the butterflies!)
Charisma Cardz want to see things with wings
Pixie Dust Studios want to see home-made embellies
Fairy Tale Challenges are looking for anything but a card 
Allsorts Challenges also want to see things with wings

Can I just add a little thank you to all the DT members who come round and look at challenge entries - I do this for a couple of teams too and I know it can take absolutely ages - so thanks for your time and your encouraging comments!
