3 Challenges and a Love Card

Image

Today’s card was made using this weeks ColourQ, The Card Concept and SCS Free 4 All challenges.

I chose to make a Clean and Simple card, and when I saw the word texture over at The Card Concept, I immediately thought of molding paste.  I tried mixed media last year and fell in love with it.  However, I am so busy with all my other hobbies I can’t enjoy it as much as I would like.
