Mojo Monday Mystery

How did this half sheet of great paisley paper get in my stash?
I don't remember seeing it before.  That probably means I have too much paper.  But, don't we all?

The Mojo Monday sketch today is for a square card.  Upon seeing that, I went digging for the pack of square cards my friend, Mickey, gave me that someone had given her.  The card bases are a pale blue/gray.  Next I went stash digging for dp that would match.  This paisley paper spoke to me.  It was a perfect light blue/gray match.
A punch for the circle, cricut cut for the scalloped circle, fussy cut stamped crazy bird with hat and bow tie, embossed deep aqua cs distressed to cover the white paper core that showed through after embossing, strip of black shimmer trim, CTMH Artiste cricut cut tag, silver embossed sentiment, and bow finished the card.  
I think I'll send it to my brother for his birthday with a snarky sentiment inside about getting old.

  3. Wrong, Debi, there's no such thing as "too much paper" !! Love your combo of the black and white paper and the blue embossed piece. Great ribbon. While I'm here, I'll put on a DT hat and say -- Thanks so much for playing along in our "Embossing" challenge at QKR Stampede this week. Hope to see you playing again soon.

  4. Hi Debi! I'd have to agree with NanaConnie (above), only I'll take it a step further and say that in crafting, there's no such thing as too much ANYTHING. It's ALL good in my book. This is SO sweet, and it's perfect for our Things With Wings Challenge. Thanks so much for playing along, and please join us again soon.
