For the birthday card, I used 'Blooming Meadows'...inked in too many colours of Distress Inks to remember. For the background I embossed plain white card with a couple of Cuttlebug folders (the ever faithful 'Swiss Dots' and 'Kassie's Brocade'). The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts...and I added a piece of green twill (by October Afternoon) to make it look like a rosette. To take the edge of all the white, I inked everything with 'Old Paper' Distress Ink.
The 'notelets' are little 4x4 card blanks from Papermania...my Nan likes writing to people...but doesn't like to have too much space to fill! I made a simple box, and used 'Garden Bouquet' inked in all the same colours as on the birthday card on the outside...
The notelets inside use all three flowery stamps, but this time I used single colours for the flower parts of the stamp on each card (far too time consuming to do them in multicolour, as I made 12 of these!) Again I inked around the edges using 'Old Paper'...here's a photo of them all:
