My card features all of the paisleys and a sentiment from one of the upcoming releases, Daisies & Paisleys. They are so beautiful and there are endless possibilities with this set. I chose to create a partial background around the sentiment and watercolour the paisleys with distress inks. This is still a clean and simple design and the watercolouring was the most time-consuming part of it but it was so much fun! Both the design and colour possibilities with this set are infinite. I added gems to the centres of the largest paisleys to finish the card and give it a bit of bling.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Daisies & Paisleys!
