Cuttlebug Challenge CBI #42

This week's challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot was "to make a gatefold card, with your favorite cuttlebug folder, for National Friendship Week".
My favorite folder is Perfectly Paisley. I have a dear friend who just loves paisleys, so I made this card for her. (I hope she does visit my blog before she gets it). I don’t usually make gatefold cards, and this one is not my favorite. I think it still need something before I will be satisfied with it. Maybe a turquoise and black flower or something. If you have any ideas, feel free to post them.

love the colors you used char and that folder is a neglected one in my stash - i need to pull it out more!
is the edge ribbon? maybe add some at the bottom so it's more visually balanced? it's wonderful how they coordinate so perfectly!
thanks for joining in at CBC!

I love using my paisley folder with other paisley; your friend is sure to love it too.

You asked about adding flowers; perhaps a very large white flower behind the circle sentiment, then a small black flower on the circle sentiment white space with a turquoise gem in the center? Just a thought...your friend will love the card no matter what you decide:)

Thanks for playing along with us.
