I am happy to have completed a card for the challenge over at Whimsical DesignsThe Challenge is to ADD TEXTURE.  I had some left over scraps from an order a friend placed last summer to make some huge bows for her.  The left over mesh ribbon is white with a sparkly shine to it.  I have used it a few times in projects, but am quite delighted how well it worked with this Christmas Card.  I was also able to use the little dimensional gingerbread man that I received from my dear friend Katie from Katie's Nesting Spot.  The poinsettias were purchased during a shopping spree for wreath materials.  I added a bit of 3GirlJAM Mistletoe Green crinkle ribbon and finished up with some Studio G glitter glue.  The base of the card was cut from Lacy Labels then folded in half using red card stock by Recollections from the Soda Pop collection.  The trim of the elegant edges of the card were highlighted with my white gel pen.
