Scrapology Challenge - T for texture paste

I decided to use the masterboard I made a few days ago for the February Scrapology challenge.  Having cut it all into pieces, there is still enough left for a card or two!
I took a few liberties with the sketch, just changed it around a little bit :-)  This layout is mostly made up of old stash and things I found in my various boxes of 'that'll come in useful' stuff.  From the masterboard, I used one block and two strips, plus a punched scallop circle.
The base sheet is from DCWV Luxury stack, which I bought online so did not realise how horribly shiny it is!  So I am quite pleased to use up a whole sheet and it does look OK, when it's mostly covered up :-)  The other papers are from an old Authentique 6" pad, I used the Woodware 4" scalloped circle punch for the large embellishment, overlaying it with a die-cut from the box and the punched circle of masterboard.  The leafy flourish is also a die-cut from the box and the butterfly was from a kit I got at a retreat class, it happened to be the right colour and also fit the title!  The letter stickers are also from a retreat class kit.
I didn't think I was going to be able to do this challenge, but I am pleased with the result!
