Totally Tags n' ATC's with Texture


Good morning crafty friends, 
Suzanne of Cricut Crafting Grammy. We are back on  Thursdays  to explore different themes, elements, techniques or embellishments.   This week we are using  Texture  on our tags and ATC's.  There is no restriction on what tools  are used to create these tags or ATC's.    It could be a die cut machine, punches, stamps, etc.  The sky is the limit.  However if the Design Team uses Digis or SVG's they will be from Paper Crafting World.  

As a side note, if you don't know what an ATC card is, 
here is an interesting definition from Wikipedia.
Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 212 by 312 inches (63 mm × 89 mm),[small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.[The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged. 
 I hope you will join us each Thursday here at My Paper Crafting for
