Texture & Dimension

This is my attempt to add some dimension to my cards.  I made this after watching the Saturday Seminar #2, presented on March 26, 2011.  You can read about it on the blog and watch the video on the Stars & Stamps blog.

I'm not sure I did much to add texture, but the ribbon is grosgrain and has a little texture and the scallops give that allusion.  I used dimensional foam mounting tape to raise the image and the sentiment a bit.  I placed the knot to even out the raised areas.  The layers help to separate the elements.  I'll work on this idea some more, but this is my first attempt.
This is a photo taken from the edge to help show the dimension.
