Witchful Thinking, a new card for Cute Daisy May

Happy Monday Everyone!
Today it's time for another new card for Cute Daisy May. Today's challenge is to add texture to your card and I chose a fabulous image from the pen of the wonderful Linnie! It's sheet 97 and you can buy it HERE.
This one is so cute that I know I'll be using her again :)

I've added some challenges to this one too.
Tuesday Morning Sketches actually don't have a sketch this week but they want to see you using Ribbons!
Also one of my favorite blogs La La Land has an embellishment challenge to add 3 different ones. I have ribbons, brads and tags.

I colored this cutie with Copic's and cut her with one of the newer Label nesties. I added the ribbons "arrow style" with patterned brads.
The dp is KI Memories.
I used a few different things to add texture to this card. I started off covering the base of the card with "splatter net" which is a product I've add for years but they no longer produce it. It is mesh with paint splatters on it and this one is purple. I like that you can see the patterned paper through it. The I used a border embossing folder that I thought looked like eyes to emboss the accent border. I added googlie eyes and glitter to the characters and they give it even more texture.
I added a Martha Stewart "Drippy Goo" punched border to the top of the card and the bottom of the accent border.
I hope this gives you a few ideas when you are looking to add texture to your projects.

Inside is more dp and a wonderful spiderweb message mat.

I hope you'll go over and play at Cute Daisy May this week and show us all your different ways of adding texture to your cards.
