Our challenge to you is to incorporate some kind of texture into your creations!

  1. Just love all the texture projects! So much fun!:)

  2. Wow, creative minds think alike! Audrey Tokach, I made my card yesterday before I even knew about this challenge. I had gotten the My Favorite Things Brick Wall Cover Up in the mail and just had to try it! My card is very similar to yours, but I honestly didn't see yours prior to making mine! This is my first entry into a Lawnscaping Challenge. Thank you Ellen Hutson for sponsoring this challenge. Love your store!

  3. Beautiful DT projects. I don't know if I have to use a Lawn Fawn stamp. If I am, please delete my entry.

  4. Everyone's projects are amazing! So much fun texture!

  5. Great DT projects! This is a fun challenge! It gives me a reason to use my embossing folders that I have forgotten about! :)

  6. Thank you for the fun challenge; one of my favorite themes! As always, the DT inspiration is amazing! Best, CG

  7. Thank you for inspiring new and creative thinking! I love seeing all the submissions!
