A Gift Set

     Last week I was busy crafting a birthday gift  for my daughter's mother-in-law.  We get along and celebrate most of the holidays together. We often get together for "ice tea".


Since I hadn't used the new Lovely Layers set yet, I decided to create 8 all occasion cards for her. For the base I used Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores and Wisteria Purple.

 The striped IP adds some nice background texture.





  I used one of the old PTI boxes as my container since the 8 cards were rather bulky from the flower being propped up.

 Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I will be sharing the gift bag & tag I put this gift in.
