My take on Carol's challenge to use patterned paper as a background. I love patterned paper but typically use it in MUCH smaller amounts. This page also gave me lots of respect for the layering queens among us; I don't know how they do it!

(And just a heads up: You are going to LOVE the new kit Katie has coming out this weekend!)
