It's Thienly here to host the next challenge! 
(I hope that you all had fun with the first one!)

For this challenge - it's all about TEXTURE.

I love adding texture into my projects.  
It simply adds interest.

Texture can come in various forms...
embossed paper.
embossed stamps.
add glitter.
use fabric.
(my fave is canvas and burlap.)
sew it.
add lace trims.
use twine.
corrugated cardboards.
sandpaper! (lol...)

Well, I'm sure you all know what I mean now!

So for this challenge -
Create a card using AT LEAST TWO different textures.

Easy peasy, right?

For an inspiration card, I made a 'give thanks' card... 
because for all us Canadians, it's a Thanksgiving weekend!
 Happy Thanksgiving to you!
(Gobble, gobble!)

You can see that I have all sorts of texture going on here...
 burlap, canvas, simanay mesh trim, jute twine, corrugated cardboard and machine stitching.

(I used the stamp set - Give Thanks - it's a BEAUTIFUL set!)
