Pretty Paisley

Just wanted to get on here really quick before hitting the sack tonight to post a card I made for two challenges. I used the sketch from this week's Paper Craft Planet Sketch Challenge and then followed the recipe for todays Holiday Challenge Extravaganza (HCE04) on Splitcoaststampers. I was delighted to use some new paisley paper I picked up today at Hobby Lobby. I just love paisley designs.

The hardest part for me was keeping with the recipe on HCE04 as it specified that I could only use Ribbon as an embellishment and that I had to have three punches somewhere on my card. I could get two punches with my sentiment, but had trouble with the third until I opted to add a butterfly...viola! LOL! I really love blue, black and white together as a color combination and I think this card really shows how nice they go together. Oh, and for the embellishment rule...well, I took these pictures then went and added four little round silver metallic adhesive beads to each corner of the Bella image. I feel much better now! LOL!
