Hmm, you could use nice textured paper of the paper you get with flowers pressed in. I should experiment with paper making soon, that would be fun.

I recently found your site from Ysolda's blog, and I really liked it.
I love your projects too (especially the Green Fairy Lollypops)

Perfect colors! What kind of paper do you recommend? These would make great cards for graduations, too, with a stitched 2006.
