This week the TeaPot challenge is to create a card for a 6 year old boy who will use texture to "see" his cards.
I used some enamel (forget the name and I am not home now) to outline the die cut truck, and to enhance the dots. I hope the texture of the embossing folder works for Austin! I used Cuttlebug dies for "hello" and "thinking of you" for the inside sentiment.
This card is also on my blog to show additional challenges.

I can see plenty of texture, but I certainly wouldn't go as far as calling it ugly, Dorothy! I think even a sighted boy would love this with the colour scheme you've used and the film-strip look. Clever idea to use the enamel (Enamel Accents?) to outline the van, that will add real texture for Austin.

You know what, I HAD to see the card that had "Ugly but with texture" as a title...first of all, the textures you used were inventive and VERY well thought out for Austin. Secondly, I bet he thinks it's the most beautiful card ever...and that's all that matters, right??? But I DO love your title! That's exactly something I would say!! HAHAHAHAHAHA
