Cutie Pie DT Card - Use Three Textures

We have a fun new challenge for you over at Cutie Pie, this time the theme is "Use Three Different Textures".  I love lots of texture on my projects so this one was right up my street.  We have two sponsors this time, Just Some Lines and The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, so why not play along to be in with a chance of winning a lovely prize?!
The DT were given an image to play with from Just Some Lines, I chose this sweet digi, I just fell in love with this adorable bear, it's been coloured with Promarkers.  My three textures are, an embossed pattern, done with an 8x8 embossing folder then inked with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, crimped paper and fabric.  The fabric elements are the ribbon and the organza flower, which I made by heating circles of man-made organza with my heat tool to melt it slightly, which causes it to pucker and shrink.  I used four fabric circle, fastening them together with a brad threaded with a punched flower.  The rocker card was made using Grand Spellbinders, I'm so lovin' my Grand Calibur!  Some lilac pearls and a die cut leafy flourish are the finishing touches.
