RED and White Paisley

I hope you can see the Paisley background. I made this image as big as I could, because the RED and white background is what I brought to this card from the Inspiration Challenge on SCS today.



The site Stef chose was Echo Designs, and they have the most beautiful repeating patterns. I focused on a paisley tote bag, which you can see at the bottom.



I had been dying to try out my new SU! punch, but when I had it ready, I thought it looked too much like a cardinal in RED, but not really enough like the bird, if you know what I mean. I had to add the crest on top of his head to make him look better. Below is the tote bag so you can see the wonderful fabric and pattern. Thanks for looking.
