You know that you're absolutely bonkers over cardmaking and stamping, when you base a whole card design around some designer paper that you went "ga-ga" over! LOL This is absolutely the case with this card. It also satisfies an "Inspiration Challenge" that was given to the CDS Design Team. Although, if you were to see the photo of the inspiration piece, you'd be scratching your head, and saying, "Whaaatttt???"" The inspiration piece was a lovely floral and paisley bedspread done in burgundy, plums and I forget what else. LOL But this paper had burgundy and plum, and I just had to use it, so, in my mind, it satisfied the inspiration piece. Silly girl! Here's the deets:
