MFT Color Challenge #48

I have recently played with making little occasions card collections. I thought they would make such
nice gift for friends or family. I have the Accucut die for the large stationary box and recently purchased the Note card collection from Papertrey Ink. I love their dies and this was a sweet set that had a variety of dies and stamps that made small square note cards. They also had a larger size add on set that cut the pretty scalloped 3.5" x 4" card. 

Being a big fan of MFT (My Favorite Things) I also have several Pure Innocence Stamp sets, but to be honest I am all about their dies. My friend Terri (TerrisBloomingIdeas) and I came across this color challenge, and we both loved the color combination for the challenge and I decided to play.

I used Spellbinders dies for the cover, and to be honest am not sure where the flower dies were from, the solid paper is Papertrey Ink. 

I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images and gamesol to blend. I used seam binding for the bow.
It happened that I had an old paper stack from K & Company called Floral Dreams in those colors. The stack has both satin and metallic finishes on portions of the prints. I used one of the prints to make a divider and line the inside the bottom of the box.
 My inks are from Stampin Up, and Versafine black.  Ice Stickles have been added for a bit of sparkle.
 The plain and scalloped ovals were cut using Spellbinders dies. These were added using some mounting foam to add a little dimension. The inside of the cards are blank, so a personal message can be added.....
 I made the envelopes using We R Memory Keepers envelope board (although I had to tweak the measurements - 7" paper scored on the 3" and 4" marks) using plain white copy paper, then I stamped swirls in coordinating colors on the front and back tab of each envelope.
Sentiments have been mixed and matched to the images to reflect a card for several occasions.I tried to include one for congratulations, sympathy, get well, missing someone, hello, etc. I added some of the smaller flowers and leaves die-cut for the box cover.
