The Card Concept - Texture

I missed participating in the inaugural Card Concept challenge and did not want to miss the 2nd!  The challenge is to used Texture on your card.
I used several textures on my card -  green (grass) and blue (sky) burlap, a layered stitched die cut sun, and two stitched rectangles - the card base and the adhered slightly smaller panel.  The house is stamped on red with Sepia ink.  The sentiment is stamped on a Dienamics Sentiment Strip.  I found a wonderful pack of 5 different colors of burlap by DCWV at Michaels.
This is either CAS (similar to DT Tracey's card) - CAL (similar to DT Kay's)  Since there are many layers even though there is still quite a bit of white space - I'm leaning towards CAL (Clean and Layered)??!

Here's a close up of the layered sun -  I just got these dies from Lil' Inker and I love them!  I bent up some of the 'rays' of the smaller top layer to add texture and dimension.

Stamps:  Board and Beams - PTI
Paper:  White, Pure Poppy, Kraft, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise - PTI
Ink:  Archival Versafine Sepia, Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  burlap - Die Cuts With a View Mat Stack (Michaels), sunshine die (large and small), Stitched Mat Rectangles - Lil' Inker Designs, Dienamics Sentiment Strip die - MFT, Enamel Dot - Michaels, foam dots.

Such a fun use of the burlap...I almost picked up some of that but wasn't quite sure how it would hold up to clipping and cutting...looks great!
