Another bling-free notecard. I used 2 heavy handmade papers - one in cream with leaves, and the other with 3-d gold handmade paper. The black border is from a K&Company collection that included greys & whites, too. I love the ragged, natural edges of the cream paper, and always buy a huge sheet when I'm at Jerry's Artarama in West Hartford, CT, my sorta-kinda adopted home town. Oops, no watermark, I see. Jeez. . .
Sometimes less is best, and I try to send some blank cards with every OWH shipment I send. This has handmade black and gold striped paper as a background for the die-cut gold Core'dinations paper tree. The button fruit is almost ripe!

a lovely handmade wedding shower tag. The cute metal cake charm was on clearance at Big Lots near Hartford, CT (Martha Stewart, too!)
