Here's the story. Last Monday, I tried the color-the-texture challenge on the blue panel, hated it and tossed it. Today, I pulled it out of the discard stack and started with the glitter/metallic pen/flowersoft (a mistake, I'm thinking. The flourish looks like a scurvy moustache!) to add texture on top of texture. Still hate it.
I then did the same ef with neenah natural white. I layered a cork die-cut thanks on cs over a scrap of handmade paper with the fishtail flags. So, both cards meet the criteria for wtui.
and of course I much prefer the CAS one.
Okay, so we'll call this effort worthy (?) of the dirty more is more challenge.

I like the glitter and metallic pen on your more-is-more one - and the flower soft is certainly texture! But I have to admit I too prefer the CAS one - the crisp texture and the cork lettering are just great.
