Saying goodbye to Just Believe and First Edition DSP

Well, I finally have to say goodbye to First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper.  We were lucky though, it stayed around for two annual catalogs, a bit unusual for Designer Paper.  I really liked working with it because you could use it for a layer, stamp on it, easily tear it, and it really added a nice dimension to your card.  I also used it to make coasters.  The Just Believe Stamp Set, which is also retiring was one set I used often with this paper.  If you still want either of these products, you have until the end of the month, unless they sell out.
My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock with a layer of Basic Black and the Designer Paper.  I added a piece of Basic Black 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon (also retiring).  I didn't want the dots to show so I turned the ribbon around.  I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock, cut it out with an Apothecary Accents Framelit and then embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (retiring).  My black layer is another Apothecary Accents Framelit. I placed this layer onto my card using Black Brads (retiring). 
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla #101650, Basic Black #121045
Designer Series Paper: First Edition Specialty #121878 (retiring)
Ink:  Basic Black #126980, Old Olive #126953
Stamp Set:  Just Believe #116948 w or #120453 c (retiring)

Tools:  Bit Shot #113439, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175 (retiring), Apothecary Accents Framelits #127003
