Make it Monday No. 7

Hello and welcome to another Make it Monday challenge.  
This week we used these fun colors to create a Winter or Christmas layout.  
The twist is to use texture.  
We would love for you to play along and join in the creating fun.  
All who link up to the Make It Monday Challenge will be entered into 
our monthly prize giveaway.  If you are a winner outside of the US, 
you will be invited to guest design with us for one of the challenges.  

I made a fun card with Bo Bunny.
