Paisley Dreams (GCSP2)

Every now and then, you come across a challenge that is so fabulous, you can’t resist giving it a try! That is how I felt when I saw this month’s “Once In A Blue Moon” challenge at Gingersnap Creations. The theme is CASE A CAS (which loosely translates into “copy and steal everything” from a “clean and simple” design) and the challenge offers participants not one, not two, but six ways to express their creativity!

Now, I must admit that after reading each choice, I wanted to do them all – but since I love beautiful paper, I couldn’t resist Option 2, creating a Clean And Simple Card With Patterned Paper!

It took awhile for me to select the perfect paper for this card – I had so many pretty papers to choose from – but as soon as I saw this gorgeous paper from Provo Craft, I knew my search was over!

To highlight the gold paisley in the patterned paper, I found a coordinating sheet of shimmery gold cardstock, cut everything down to size, and mounted the papers on the card.  I then added a very pretty snippet of gold ribbon to the card, along with a Maya Road Paisley Ribbon slide to further accent the paisley theme and a few Skittles (no, not the candy!) to finish the card off.

So, my creative year is off to a good start – how about yours? Do you plan on doing anything crafty this weekend? How are you doing with your resolutions? I’d love to hear from you when you have a moment – all it takes is a Comment to brighten my day!  🙂

    I love your card! I've learned not to make resolutions. I can never keep them anyway. I am trying to be more creative in my paper crafts.
