CHNC challenge 224: add some texture

For my CHNC challenge 224, I'm asking to see some texture on your Christmas designs - it might be some embossing, fabric, flowers, lace ... anything that provides some texture - I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too.

For my card I used an embossing folder run through the eBosser to texture some red mirror card, matted this on to a green card blank and added a picture from a set I bought long ago, a couple of Hobbycraft poinsettias on other flowers and some gold ribbon - a few different textures.

This is also for:
