Rainin' Daisies

I had a little play last night, and made a card for a few challenges. I used the sketch from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge; and combined the themes of: the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of 'Vintage with Flowers'; A Spoon Full of Sugar's 'Distress Inks, Pearls & Glitter'; and Crazy4Challenge's 'It's all about texture'. The image is 'Rainin' Daisies', and the papers are all from the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye. I don't have any distress inks, so I used chalk inks, and my distressing tool to distress the edges. For the textures, I used my 'Swiss Dots' and 'Textile' Cuttlebug folders, and added flowers (decorated with some Stickles) and some adhesive pearls.
