Add some texture to your card

Morning everyone I hope you are all having a great week.

I can't believe that it is already Sunday which of course also means its time for a new Magnolia Down Under Challenge. This week we want to see you use texture on your card, the possibilities are endless such as embossing, cardboard, crimping, fabric...
I had a birthday card to make for my niece this week who also happens to be a little tomboyish. So my new Skateboarding Tilda was a perfect match for her.I still wanted the card to be girly which I think I have achieved. My texture was added by using a bit of an old cardboard box!
Anyhow here is my card:

I am also going to enter this in this weeks challenge at TOMIC which is recycle. MY piece of recycling is the cardboard which I have taken from an old cardboard box and here is the pic of my sheet of cardboard.

I have just ripped off the top layer of paper to reveal the corrugated paper. I also take the back section off too to make a a little less chunky on the card. I hope you understand what I mean!

Cute hey? I think I achieved that tomboy but still pretty effect. I really enjoyed making this card...
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
