Pretty Papers

I love beautiful paper. I try to make a pact with myself not to buy any more - ever - because I have enough designer paper to last me another lifetime. Really. But pretty patterns and colors just seem to keep finding their way into my stamp room. The card I am sharing today was made just to highlight some of the pretty papers I have.
This paper is from Pink Paislee and is called Butterfly. I love lace and pearls, and seam binding bows too! I hope you have a wonderful week. I have a busy week ahead - taking a two-day summer workshop out of town and lots going on here at Joy in a JAR every day this week. So have a great day and I hope to see you back here tomorrow!

What a lovely card! I love everything about it....and can identify with having LOTS of paper! I tend to hoard it for a while before I'm willing to part with it on a project!
