Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 164

Morning folks....time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday with our lovely teamie Beth at the helm.  We had a fabulous response to last week's "Anything Goes" challenge and what a gorgeous variety of creations...thanks once again for taking the time to join in the fun.
The challenge this week is...
we want you to use anything that gives some texture to your card...and my touchy feely bits and pieces are these gorgeous fluffy snowballs....pleated seam binding and the self adhesive pearls on the tree...

Papers: Magnolia
Image: Penny Black....Snowy & Fantasy
Sentiment: LOTV...Set 5 Circular Sentiments - Christmas
Seam Binding....The Ribbon Girl
Pearls...Hobby House
and the snowballs...who knows...they have lurking in the cubbyhole for ages and were an absolute bu**er to stick down...

we have a fabulous prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday from our lovely friends at...
$20 voucher to spend at their fabulous online store where you will find lots of Penny Blacks along with lots of other cardmaking bits and pieces.

If you need some inspiration to get you started....pop over to Penny Black Saturday and check out the fabulous "Touchy Feely" cards that my DT chums have come up with this week.  It's back to the rainy dark and dingy weather here again so we're having a snuggly cubbyhole day playing with a very cute bunny who goes by the name of Warren...he's the star of this month's Project Kit from Craftwork Cards...catch up with you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: to answer Dawn's question....I stuck the snowballs down with silicone glue...but they are still a tad wobbly and to go in the mail....the card would probably require a box or some form of padding.

  19. Thanks Kath - I had a feeling you'd say that. It makes the card so expensive to send then *sigh* - I had a terrible time last Christmas making sure all the posting cards were flat enough for standard postage!
