My aunt took a trip to Japan and thoughtfully picked up a package of absolutely gorgeous paper for me.
Then she read my comment on Ellen Hutson's FB page that I don't use patterned paper and worried I wouldn't use the papers.
So I made this card to prove her wrong.
The design in the paper was perfect for a narrow vertical strip which leaves lots of glorious white space, so it definitely looks like a LateBlossom card. So no worries, kind aunt!
The gorgeous paper contains an olive green that looks amazing with the pink background...a color combo I would never have come up with myself. That olive shade on the paper is slightly darker but a great match for Brilliance pearlescent olive ink. The slight shimmer of the olive ink looks great in real life with the shimmer of the gold on the paper.
There are stranger things than LateBlossom using patterned paper. Plus, it's fun to get out of the box now and then...especially with such lovely papers!
Thanks, Aunt Sylvia!
Love, peace, hope, and joy,
