Crazy 4 Challenges #26

Its Saturday and that means it is a CRAZY day! A Crazy4Challenges day that is!

This is my final week to host the challenges at C4C. I hope you all enjoyed them!

This week, it is all about textures. I challenged the design team to create cards using at least 3 different textures. There are so many different things we use in our art that add texture, so this one should be easy :)

Our sponsor this week is Totally Stampalicous 
Joycelyn was kind enough to offer us some digital images and I am so grateful!!
Thanks so much for letting me play with the Road Hawg images. They are perfect for cards/gifts for my brother.

Here is the card I made for my brother:
I have such a hard time making masculine looking cards, but I think this one turned out okay. 
My textures are: textured paper, Cuttlebug embossed PP, Distress Stickles (headlight), Glossy Accents (fenders, gas tank, boots, sunglasses and the shield emblem) and finally the ribbon was a very textured white ribbon that I colored with my Copics.
I colored the images with Copics, antiqued them all with Distress Inks and cut out with Nesties and by hand. The sentiment was curled and adhered with glue to give a strong bond to hold up to the bending. It looks better in person because you can see that the sentiment strips actually alternate in their bending. In the picture, it just looks uneven. lol The 'brad' on the sentiment strips are actually punched circles from the textured cardstock. I curved them with a stylus and glued them to the card. I didn't have any appropriate brads, so I made faux ones.
Obviously, my brother is Randy and I added his name to the sheild before printing it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out what the other Crazy gals did this week.
Have a GREAT weekend!
