Thinking of you

So, who remembers Mulberry Paper?  You know that stuff you had to have back in the early 2000's?  Now, who has a GIANT stash of it?  Yep, I sure do.  It has been languishing in my paper holder and pretty much just collecting dust for a loooooong time.  But in my travelling around blog land with my DT hat on from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra (yep, a shameless little blurb there) I came across this gorgeous card with a fabulous tutorial on how to create the soft mulberry layer.  I had a fun time with the technique this weekend.
Isn't it so soft and beautiful?!  I've also had this ribbon forever!  It's really gorgeous, so I don't know why I haven't used it before.  I think it will make another appearance, soon.
