Ugly Paper Challenge

Queen of My Craftroom is having a  challenge to make a card with Ugly paper.  I knew exactly which paper I wanted to use.  I love K&Company, but honestly, I don't like this paper...what do you do with it - honestly??  I have trouble using patterned paper anyway, so this was a huge challenge for me.  I could only bring myself to use a corner of it but had trouble coming up with a sentiment.  What sentiment do you put on an ugly card?? 
The little hampster is from Four Legged friends (lite) cartridge.  (I was so distracted by using that ugly paper, I forgot to tell you what cartridge I used!)

Oh my goodness, Linda...this is the perfect card. That hampster/guinea pig looks like it just shredded a whole pad of paper. LMAO - I think the sentiment would be more....."When life gives you scraps......shred them". LOL

GREAT as always! You're my inspiration!

Linda -- Your card is not ugly at all!! The paper, yes, the card, no!! I think I live in a delusional world as I can't think of any ugly paper that I have -- though I'm sure I do!! I'm gonna have to look now...

Thanks for the giggle (love the critter, BTW!)...
