Tasty Texture

Hello everyone,

A quick post from me today as I am just about to put the decorations on the Christmas tree.....sadly my other half managed to untangle all those fairy lights without getting into a mess like the poor man on my tag yesterday  ;)

This card owes a lot to the very wonderful and uber talented Ingrid,as she sent me a lot of the bits I've used here a while ago when we do our regular little swaps. So a big thank you Ingrid,as usual :))

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs,'Tis the Season

A Vintage Journey,Birds of a Feather

We Do Doobadoo,Get Festive

Moo-Mania & More,Poinsettia

Distress stains and inks,dylusions sprays,embossing powders,texture paste,stickles. The dies are mostly Tim Holtz except the gorgeous poinsettia which is Cheery Lynn.

Hope you like it
