Greetings fellow bloggers! I am waiting to go to Jury duty this AM so I have a little time to post a card I made this weekend. My card is for 2 different Challenges. 1) OCC challenged us
 to make a card using texture & only black & white. 2)  Just Us Girls challenged us to make a card using dry embossing.
So much texture & dimensional goodness!! For my Dry embossing I used my old standby cuttlebug swiss dots. all paper & DP is PTI. I used Marvy mega flower punch (doctored up a bit) for my flower. Just free hand cut the leaves & used SU scallop punch (doctored  that a bit too) for the bottom layers. I love how fun & easy this was to make!! Here is a different view.

That's it for this one....better get ready to go!! Thanks for todays visit!!

This is just too darn cute! Clever way to add texture with "slits" for grass and I LOVE the fun black/white patterned paper combo!!!
