Making Notes

After making the pink and lilac card in the previous post there were still some flowers and pieces of backing paper left so these were used to decorate a notebook and both card and notebook are going to be given to Ian's girlfriend who celebrates her birthday tomorrow.  The ribbon box was raided and all those small pieces of ribbon that have been kept, just in case, and the bows which were discarded after cutting the tails too short were put to good use to decorated the wire.

The inside of the card was personalised for Emily and decorated with the outline flower stamps from the Penny Black Transparent set Pretty Petals.

Hopefully she'll like both card and notebook.

I'd like to enter this notebook in the following challenges
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 65 - No Cards Allowed
