Let the Paper Make the Statement

Here's a card I made a while back using BG Kioshi paper pack. I loved this design so much I felt it didn't need much more than a bow and a bit of embellishment - the paper was too pretty by itself. I did use some clear chandelier beads from Magnolia, and ribbon and gem from my stash, to make it look like a bouquet. I like the result, as simple as it is.

  8. I know what you mean, I shop just for the look of the paper. I hate to cover the pattern so doing what you did enhanced it so now it is even more beautiful. Very nice card.
