CYDA Challenge 9 - Time to add some texture!

It's time for challenge number 9 at CYDA. This is a very special challenge for me as it is the first challenge I have hosted, the theme I have chosen is 'TEXTURE'. Argh, what does that mean I hear you cry, well it simply means using some different mediums on your work, ribbon, glitter, embossing, stitching, distressing... there are so many ways this can be achieved.

We are being sponsored by the fab Simon Says Stamp, one lucky person will win a $10 voucher to spend at the store. Please do come and join in the fun and check out the gorgeous creations made by my lovely team mates x

So onto my DT card, I decided to make a card using a new Tilda stamp. I have added texture by distressing and Stickling the edges of my papers, using glittered paper, adding ribbon, pearls, pins and some beautiful crystal drops...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Image - Secret Tilda by Magnolia from Crafty Ideas by Kaz coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Officially Winter Seal by Catslife Press from Crafty Emma's Store
Paper - O Christmas Tree by MME
Pearls - The Hobby House
Pins - stash
Crystal stem - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - Dovecraft
Stickles - Frosted Lace
Tools - Magnolia Tilda Lace die from Crafts U Love, scissors for distressing
