Less is more with A Day for Daisies

I decided to do another card and combine 2 challenges today. Momma really needed some craft time today (aka the children were c-r-a-z-y monkeys) The first challenge is at Less is More (make a clean and simple card using polka dots). The second is where this great image came from called A Day for Daisies (make a card with texture)
As you may know from previous posts, the style of card making I struggle the most with is CAS cards. I don't know why, I just want to add more stuff to my cards-lol. The card reads " can't wait for a new chapter to begin" I thought that may be fitting for a few different occasions. I ruffed up the edges and paper pieced the child's pjs. So here is my first attempt

And of course because I have to add more, here is my second card (hey I still kept it pretty simple, just added a ribbon for a pop of colour!)
Now go check out their blogs and play along!
