It's a card and a gift voucher set made using the most wonderful new set in the catalogue Everything Eleanor. The set includes a wonderful flourish, which I've stamped on the background paper, this fantastic tag shape (SO versatile!) and three beautiful shaded flowers. Let's have a closer look at those flowers:
They're easy to cut out and can be layered as I've done with the blue one. The tiny four-petalled flower is even easier - it's a stamp from the Itty Bitty Bits set cut out with the coordinating punch - easy peasy! My friend is blonde-haired and blue-eyed and looks fantastic in these sorts of soft colours.
The voucher is for a store where we used to bump into each other sometimes when our children were younger. We don't have the time for things like that now but I thought it might make her smile and be fun to spend at the same time! I chose the voucher in a plain white card so that I'd be able to simply embellish it.
A voucher doesn't always look very important, so I presented it in a box with a raised insert. The ribbon is Baja Breeze seam binding - so silky soft and just perfect for tying effortless double bows like this one! I added another little flower tag to tie to the bow so that it all coordinates nicely.
And here we are - the finished set! My lovely friend took plenty of time to open it which I very much appreciated!

During the week, I tend to write my blog the day before it's published which often confuses me... (frankly, it doesn't take much!) so if you were wondering why I didn't wish my US readers a very happy thanksgiving yesterday, that'll be the reason! I might be a little late but I do hope you're all having a wonderful time!
And to everyone else too - have a lovely weekend and I'll hope to see you very soon.
