CACB DT Card - Challenge 3

Hi everyone, this is my DT card for challenge 3 at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog and the theme this time is 'Touchy Feely' so we're looking for some texture on your cards.
All the paper elements in my card are actually digital downloads from Ann, the gorgeous image is 'Daffodil 1' and the backing papers are from the 'Polished Stone' collection and consist of 'Light Olive' from the Earth Tones set and 'Golden Yellow' from the Autumn Tones.

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's Digi Stamps 'Daffodil 1'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Crafty Ann's Backing Papers 'Polished Stone'
* Punches - Martha Stewart 'Punch around the page - Fan' border and corners
* Everything else from my stash

I've been a bit fed up with all this dark and dreary weather we've been having lately, so I decided to try to make my card really vibrant and it's also been sprayed very liberally with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, so it has a lovely subtle shimmer all over. Aaaahhh, that's better, you can't beat some shimmer and sparkle for cheering a girl up lol!
I finished off with some little felt flowers, tiny pearls, a foiled sentiment and a Nestability mat for some different textures.

The DT had such fun visiting all your blogs to see what you came up with for the last challenge, and you certainly made some wonderful creations so I'm hoping that you'll all manage to join in the fun again.
If you need some inspiration, just take a look at what the DT have produced this time and don't forget you have two weeks until the challenge ends and the only limit is your imagination.
