I am not a big fan of paisley. It's OK, but I never go out of my way to use it. There are so many stampers and paper crafters who go "ga ga" for paisley, but I am most certainly not one of them.
One of my packages of Stampin' Up patterned paper has a paisley pattern. Not a fan. But I'm trying to use some of the papers I've accumulated in the last several months so I decided to bite the bullet and use some of the paisley. I don't know if I don't like this card because of the paisley or if I just think that the card is that bad. I guess you can be the judge.
I started with a white card and cut a piece of this paisley paper 1/4" smaller than the front of the card. I cut a piece of Whisper White and stamped Happy Birthday on it in black classic ink. I then took a stamping sponge and sponged the edges of the white piece with Certainly Celery ink. I attached the piece to the front of the card. The card still needed something, so I added some light yellow grosgrain ribbon to the fol. And still, it seemed plain... so I punched holes in the ribbon and put two gold daisy brads through the ribbon.
So, what do you think? Is it as bad as I think it is?
