Patterned Paper

I challenged myself to make a card today using designer paper as the focal point. The picture I had in my head before I started was nothing like this but when I looked through my stash of papers and saw this one, I had a new picture in my head. The trick is to pick a paper that has an image, it's own focal point and use that in place of a stamped image.
I cut out two extra flowers and popped them up on dimensional to make them a focal point.
I'm sorry, but I don't remember the name of this paper or what company made it. I've had it for years. If you recognize it though, please, let me know. Everything else on the card is from Stampin' Up!
 I really wish Stampin' Up! would bring back those ribbon flowers. I love them!!!


recipe:
designer paper: ?
card stock: crumb cake, early espresso, naturals ivory
stamp: tiny tags (retired)
accessories: scallop edge border punch, jewelry tag punch (retired), 
1 1/4" burlap ribbon, 5/8" crochet trim,
vintage trinkets, dimensionals

Happy Stampin'
