Thank You Ensemble for a really nice lady!

I reached out to a co-worker last week to help me obtain the use of a Conference Room in San Francisco.  Since I was not familiar with that office I tried to reach out to our Director's Admin for help.  She was not in the office but left a message for someone to contact in the event we needed assistance during her absence.  That lady was amazing, within 10 minutes she had a Conference Room reserved for my meeting.  In turn I decided to create something from Stampin' UP! for her and here it is~

The little notebook idea came from Patty Bennett, she shared it at our last Luv2Stamp Group Meeting and if you click on her name linked above is her Tutorial.  The color wasn't exactly what I wanted so I trimmed off the green around the closure and added a piece of Island Indigo to match my card colors.  The Gingham stripe I created using the roller wheel with the same name using Island Indigo Ink, cut it and mounted it to the front of the card and also used some for ribbon tails on the inside of the card.  The Thank You is from the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set and the You Can Never Have Too Much Happy is from the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set we received at Convention. The Flower is from the Flower Shop Stamp Set and I punched the flower out with the matching punch.  The Card Base is Island Indigo CS with a layer of Basic Black CS and then the sentiment and decoration is on Whisper White CS.  I used the Oval Framlits to cut out the center piece on the inside and the Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch for my name.  Also used Basic Rhinestone Jewels to embellish.  The Sycamore Street 1/4" Island Indigo Ribbon is retired but I had a whole spool of it and it matched!  The tag on the front of the notebook was cut using Framelits - Chalk Talk.  I used the Envelope Liners Framelit to line the inside of the envy and stamped flowers to match the card on the front of the envelope.  I'll have my Supervisor deliver it all to her in S/F on Wednesday when he attends his meeting.
