ModSquad Challenge for February

The time is going fast and it is time for another challenge at the ModSquad.  I am so happy to be representing Power Poppy this year and I am having a lot of fun too.  I feel a bit of pressure to create something worthy of these designs.  This month, I decided to pick a challenge that shows texture.  That is why I titled the challenge, Show me your TEXT (ure).  I had a digital image that fit well with the new embossing folder that was a gift from my Son this year. 
Here is my card.
I just love this digital image from Power Poppy.  It was in her November release and is called Get Wool Soon.  I printed it out on white card stock and die cut it with Crossed stitched Circle from MFT.
After coloring with Copic markers, I placed it on an embossed layer that was done with a Stampin  UP Embossing Folder, called Cable Knit.  What texture it gave this card.  Great with the yarn and knitting needles.  After embossing, I used Distress Ink in Peeled Paint to sponge over it.
I used a white heavy card stock for the base.  There is a layer of blue texture card stock over that.  Some patterned paper from Every Elle, the Sorbet collection.  A strip of scallop from the blue across the bottom to separate the two papers.
Can’t wait to see how you all do this challenge.

Here is a closer look at the digital image. 

Thanks for stopping by, your comments really brighten my day.
