Everything Eleanor Thanks Card

My good friend Jan gave me the Everything Eleanor set for my birthday, it's been on my wish list for a while and it's lovely to be able to use this gorgeous set now!  I thought it only fitting to use the set on a thank you card for Jan.  The card measures 5 3/4" square and I used Island Indigo, Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry for my colour combo - suggested by the SU! Colour Coach - and it's a winner as far as I'm concerned!

I stamped the flourish a few times on a panel of Island Indigo text patterned paper, mounted that on a Razzleberry layer and added the taffeta ribbon.  I stamped the label and added the 'thanks', stamped the flowers, cut them out, added some gems and popped the flowers up.  I matted onto a Baja Breeze layer and glued that to the Island Indigo card base.   

Here's the inside and the envelope flap.

I also decorated the front of the envelope.  What a beautiful stamp set to work with!

I got this stamp set last week too and oh my, isn't it a beauty?! That swirl is just gorgeous! I love the rich blues and reds you've combined it with and I love how you've decorated the envelope too!
