Thank You Gift Set

Hi all I wanted to show you this little gift set that I made for the challenge at Let's Ink It Up, I so enjoyed making this and using all new items.  The challenge is quite different and called Swaps I love the idea of this. I am also entering this into the Cupcake Challenge which is 'Thank You with Autumnal Colours'

I belong to a Stamping Ten group and order SU products each month, awhile ago I ordered the 'Forest Friends' set of stamps which I have used for the first time on this gift set.

We also have a November monthly sponsor at Stamping Vacation
For the month of November we have MARK'S FINEST PAPERS as our sponsor. They will be giving away 4 of the December Sneak Peek stamp sets and there will be a $25.00 gift certificate to their store as well! The winner will be raondomly chosen on December 1st! We will be showcasing their stamps throughout the month. 

Mark's Finest Papers, do a wonderful range of clear stamps, and as a DTM I received a set of these stamps very recently and decided they would be perfect for this challenge and give you a sneak peek at what you could win by joining us at Stamping Vacation.
Here is my little project
I made a little gift box using SU Rich Razzleberry card stock, I didn't follow a tutorial but used my Martha Stewart score board which has box sizes in a little fold down top, I thought this was so useful.
To decorate the box I also used Rich Razzleberry dotty ribbon and matching flowers from my stash.
For the top I stamped the tree image from the Forest Friends set then used the circle and flourishes from Mark's Finest.
This is a look at the inside when opened, the matching envelopes are at the bottom of the box.
These are the cards themselves, I used 3.5"x3.5" white card I used the same stamping method of using the SU images first then adding the circle and sentiments, there is a total of nine sentiments in the stamp set two of which were perfect for the challenge, all images have been stamped using SU Rich Razzleberry ink.

I hope you have enjoyed my little project I hope I haven't rambled on but I am so excited to be back creating again lol.
 hugs to all and see you later.
