the paisley shape is from Cindy Loo pattern papers from My Minds eye

  55. Most impressed with your use of embossing folders - and I love the leather look - the #1 - looks leather. I can see this on a man's greeting card as well. Love what you've put together.

    Thanks for participating in this blog hop - I found another one to follow for inspiration.
