Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques and this Natural Composition Specialty Paper gets the look without the embossing.  Can you say "time saver"?  You know when you need a card in a hurry and you don't have time for fuss.  This is the paper to grab! It's beautiful plain or sponged with color as you see here. 

The main image is the from the Apothecary Art (wood, clear) set with a few Basic Pearls as an accent. Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon adds the finishing touch.

Now for the card from the archives...

I think a black and white color scheme on a card is so elegant!  This is  that discontinued DSP pack from the past that I absolutely loved, Night and Day.  I used that same designer paper in the "blast to the past card" in THIS POST.  I believe the floral image is from the retired, Fifth Avenue Floral set.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the current and popular, Teeny Tiny Wishes (wood), (clear).  The combination of patterns in the designer paper and the "night and day" contrast make this card one of my favorites.  I think I'll try this same sketch soon with some current products!
