Mehndi Wishes - Stamp set from StampTV

I had to try a favorite technique again with the Mehndi Wishes stamp set - paper bleaching with clorox.  I also added ink to my cuttlebug Paisley folder to create the DP that I thought coordinated beautifully with the stamp. I did 2 different designs - mostly because I inked on each side of the folder to see how different the effects would be.  I prefer design #1 because after I ran the folder through the cuttlebug, I didn't like the recessed parts being inked, so I flipped the paper over and then lightly added ink (direct to paper) to the raised side.  Following are the items I used to make these cards:
