Since my birthday was a few days ago, I knew I would have to be making a lot of thank-you cards, so I decided to do one for my example to the "Add Texture Challenge"  by ScrapbookerPhD. This is my first challenge example as a member of the design team, and I am super excited! Since we are moving, most of the crafting supplies had been packed away, so I had limited tools to make this card.
First, I started with adding some texture to some plain green paper with a Cuttlebug, using a heart patterned embossing folder. I got the cute squirrel image from Some Odd Girl's digital stamps, and printed it out on printer paper, colored it in, and cut it out. I cut out some strips of orange, and a colorful patterned paper, then made a tag to put my sentiment on. I inked the edges of my tag, then stamped on "thank you!" as the final touch.

This card was super easy and fun to make! It shows that you can be crafty, even if you don't have a lot of supplies! I hope this helped inspire you for the "Add Texture Challenge" to make something creative yourself!
