Practical Scrappers - patterned paper challenge

This week's challenge is patterned paper over at Practical Scrappers. I dug out this fabulous 'To The Nines' specialty paper from Stampin' Up! I really wanted to use it up because this paper has the colour Sage Shadow on it and it's one of the colours that will be retiring at the end of June, so that means this paper will be retiring too. This paper is great because it is of cardstock quality. Because this paper is double sided the inside of the card has the same paisley pattern as the cover panel on the card. I attached a piece of Whisper White on the inside to allow for a message. The sentiment is from the All Holidays stamp set. I stamped it in Sage Shadow and then mounted it on a piece of Chocolate Chip. Then I mounted that on one of the Kisses die cuts from the Sending Love Notes cards from the last Occasions Mini. I added some Chocolate Chip satin ribbon and popped the sentiment up on dimensionals.
