Pretty Paisley

Hello everyone and welcome to Wednesday...the work week is half over...woo-hoo!! I'm extra excited since it's my birthday weekend. No house cleaning, no dinner cooking and I get CAKE!!! I love cake...sigh. My big sissy, Denise is coming into the city so that's something to look forward to too, but if she tries to eat my cake I may stab her with my fork...just sayin' ;)  hehehehe
Growing up and even now, paisley has been a favorite pattern of mine. I was super excited when I saw the new DeNami images and there was some fun paisley! Paisley is so girly, sweet and fun, how can you not like it, right?!? For my first creation using they yummy paisley stamps, I decided to make a pretty patterned paper and let it take center stage....
I started out stamping the 3 paisleys randomly all over my white cardstock. Then I pulled out a few Petit Four sets: Elegant Floral stamp set, Whimsical Valentine stamp set, and the Garden Accents stamp set to fill all of the open areas. I really wanted to keep the card fairly pastel, but since my yellow ink pad is a little bright I added a bright blue to balance it out. I think this card would have looked extra cute if I really had sewn it vs. using the little zigzag stamp, but alas, I haven't sewn in years and my sewing machine is packed away in the bowels of the basement destined to never see the light of day again....sigh
That's it for me today! I'm so happy that some of you have entered the random birthday drawing here on the blog!! How guys are awesome :)  If you haven't entered yet, there's still time!
 All the info can be found here, you have until July 31st. I'll be picking a random entry to win a $25 DeNami Design gift certificate!
