Ugly paper?

I'm joining in at Show us your Stuff for the Ugly Paper theme.  Quite a tricky challenge, because "ugly" is a strong, subjective concept.  I don't think I've got any truly ugly papers in my stash, but I have a few that are a bit dated and others that don't really suit my current style of scrapping.

I did find something that fits the challenge criteria though.  A few years back I was lucky enough to win a prize pack from Bo Bunny.  I am a huge fan of Bo Bunny products, but this particular collection pack just didn't click with me, because of the colour scheme (lots of purples and mauves - not a favourite colour palette) and the texture (feels like wallpaper!).  The glitter-embossed paper buckled quite badly around the embossed motifs, and I couldn't flatten it no matter what I tried. Anyway... this is what I came up with:

I broke up the pattern with some white paper doilies, and I included a handmade flair from Cocoa Vanilla.

Bo Bunny Jazmyne - Verdant patterned paper
Carolee's Creations AdornIt - Green Foam alphabets
Baker's twine
Paper doilies
Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice flair button
