Talking Texture

I am a little late with this post but today a new dare started over at Daring Cardmakers. This time its all about texture on your cards.

Kathy is this weeks host and she wants to see lots of texture on your creations.  This could be fabrics, metal, cork, leather anything to make your card interesting to touch.

This is what I came up with.  And yes its Christmas!!

For my touchy feely bit I have used some pom pom trim, lace, the snowflake is cut from glittered foam and my ribbon is all glittery too.

The papers and sentiment I have used are from Pink Petticoat.  I also just love my Stampin Up star framlits at the moment so I mounted the snowflake onto one cut from glitter card.  Which is hard to see in the photo.
I picked the colours of the card to match the challenge over at Merry Monday which was to use pastels.

Don't forget to stop by the Design Team blogs for more lovely inspiration.
