Believe Circle Lever card (and 2 free textures)

These cards are super easy to make and oh so cute! This one has a slight masculine feel to it, which is not always easy for me.
The background paper is from a digital kit:, Patterned Papers and Elements from Just a Boy by Kristin Aagard available at http://www.plaindigitalwrapper.com/ and/or http://www.digidelights.blogspot.com/.  I downloaded this freebie some time ago and it is one of my favorites. I altered the hue and saturation in PSE so that it more closely matched the other colors. I also had to reduce in in size in order to use it as a texture in MTC (scroll down for the free textures). .

The image on the left is a portion of the original paper design. I muted the colors and used the image in the right to tile in MTC. I used the color picker in PSE to choose the green that I used for the circle and the tag. The font used for "just because" is Mural Script (free here). 
The "Believe" design is from Lettering Delights Garden Meditation
This is an understated but lovely graphic set that can be easily over-looked. The card design itself is the SVG Cuts Breezy Backyard Lever cards. A bit of twine from The Twinery finishes off the card. 
I cut this from MTC to the Silhouette using the Graphtec Blade holder on HP Presentation Paper (32 #). Normally this paper is not heavy enough for a card base but with this design it works well. Here is a peek at my layout. 
I also designed 2 textures that co-ordinate with these graphics and colors. Download here and here.
 As always, enjoy crafting!
