Using Texture for 'A Day For Daisies' Challenge


The heat is so intense in this part of WI that I have picked an Easter image for this card with fond thoughts of cool spring weather - maybe a little snow on the ground!

Today's card is my entry into the current challenge at "A Day For Daisies" - using 'Texture' as the theme. The  image is a Daisies digital image called "Easterload" and I love this sweet little person! For the different textures I have first paper painted with 3 different patterned papers for the dress, the egg and the flowers - I love fussy cutting! Then I used Crystal Effects on the flower petals and her dress and added Stickles to the Easter egg and to her hair. Go to to see all of the entries and the creative ways texture was used!

All this week we are to continue to have temperatures in the high 90's and tomorrow it is to be 99 again - don't even want to think of what the heat index will be! We have a chance of a thunderstorm today but only 30 % and as the storms have been passing us by for so long I don't know if that will happen. We need rain badly and the daily heat warnings are scary. Wishing you a good Monday!

Wonderful card. Your cards always impress me with all the details you put in to them.
Try and stay cool.

It's been unbearably hot here. We spend most of our time inside with the air running.

Your card is beautiful.

I'm admiring your cutting. :) I also love this because it gives some texture and a bit of dimension but is still completely mailable!
