I hate to toot...

my own horn, but I love the way this set came out.  A friend of mine is celebrating her 65th (that can't be right, if you met her you might think she is late 40's) next week.  I am going to be on vacation next week so I am happy that I got this done before leaving.

I made this set of cards and a notebook for her.

my favorite, the notebook:

and each card:

flower detail

I went to the Scrapbook store for inspiration.  I came home with three sheets of PP from Basic Grey, Hello Luscious, to make these.  I have tons of PP left over.  Of course I also used a lot of my PTI favorites. 
On the notepad I clear embossed a new BG stamp on the cardstock and did some fussy cutting of the flowers from the PP.  I then added stickles and a few tiny pearls.
On the flower details you will see die cuts using my 1 3/4 inch circle and one each of the beautiful blooms dies.  I love layering them this way.
On the best wishes card I used my newish MFT mini rolled flower die.  I really like the way the flowers come out but I am still getting the hang of rolling them up and having them stay together.  This time I added a drop if clear glue down the center of them once they were rolled up.  Seemed to work OK, but I am not convinced they will stay in place.
 I want to make a tag to add to the gift package too.  If I can get that done this weekend I will post before I leave on Monday.

Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,
