And, now I have some leftover elements that I can use in a future project.

But, you all know the purpose of Paper Seedlings: Planting Creative Paper Ideas. I guess I planted little paper seedlings in myself, and acted on them, bringing them to full flower. If something doesn't speak to you, switch it up to make it YOUR OWN!
Let me know what you think.
