Cheery Lynn Designs - Texture



Hi and Good Morning :) 
 
Our new challenge over at  Cheery Lynn Designs this week is 'Texture' and as always the winner will get a fabulous $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn website, so well worth joining in if you can.
 
I really enjoyed making my card for this weeks theme, and was aiming for something fresh, light and delicate.  I usually have some kind of image as a focal point on my card, but the Celtic Heart die provided a perfect centrepiece.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and layered ice white pearl card and blue bazzil cardstock.  I then used the Dotted Swiss embossing plate on the pearl card for texture, and added the Border Carnivale and some dotty ribbon at the bottom.
 
The gorgeous Large Sunflower Doily is perfect for this size of card and creates a beautiful background to the stacked circles and Celtic heart centrepiece.  Finally I added Darling Daisies and the word LOVE from the new release sentiments.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to play along with the challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing more fab entries.  Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I seem to be playing catchee-up with my commenting, but I will be round to visit everyone in the next couple of days :)

I love your playing about with the polka dots in this design - those pins really catch the eye & then the holes in the doily & the textured background add lovely emphais - not to mention the frilly bit along the bottom. The colours are delightful - beatuifully soft & I like your varied layering of the daisies. Quite special this.
