Crafting for all Seasons #13 Texture

Another two weeks have flown by and it's time for a new challenge at CFAS, this time we want to see texture on your projects. We're being sponsored by Meljens and The Paper Shelter this time.

I've used three backing papers from the Pepe l'souris in love paper pack and the pre-coloured snowman image all available from The Paper Shelter. I've used a swiss dots folder to add texture to the layers and stickles on the image. Card is finished with some punched snowflakes with added stickles and a sparkly tinsel bow.
Do pop over to the challenge blog  to see the inspiration of the other DT members.
