The Magic of Christmas

Hello Friends! It's Friday! Today, I am sharing the card I made for the Christmas Card Challenge blog. The challenge for this week was to use: PAISLEY.

Click to enlarge.

When I saw the challenge, I immediately thought of this paisley patterned paper, but just as quickly dismissed the thought because of the colors. As the week went on, I fiddled around with different stamps and ideas and I kept coming back to this paper. I was stuck. So rather than fight it, I decided to go with it. Although it's difficult to see in the photo, the paisley panel is adhered with dimensional tape, making the greeting panel recede. It's really quite a nice effect in real life.You can see that I added some glittered buttons on too.

That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend.
