Going Dotty


 
Hi and Good Morning :)  Alison here today and what wonderful entries we have had so far this week in our 'Texture' Challenge.  You still have plenty of time to join in, and you can link your entry here.
 
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.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
