Suzi's 34th Birthday Gift Set

Mel and I got together last week and made this little 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" box that Mel has on her blog to put the little jewellery set I bought for Suzi's Bday gift. There is a lady who makes beautiful jewellery that my Mom and I love to buy from, so I thought I'd get Suzi a set. I wanted something neutral and feel in love with the set pictured below. Now, I want one! :O)

Mel drew these flowers, printed them on vellum and embossed them. She also created the beautiful paper with print and the flowers on it. She is too damn talented! I coloured the vellum in with cool grey #7 on the back of it. Added white Souffle pen to make the little dots pop with white. I also am giving Suzi a goat soap that she loves, that I purchase from Vancouver Island and only use them. They come in great scents and don't leave that soap film on your skin! I made a little matching cover to go over the goat soap that matches the little box and card. I hope she likes the jewellery.. well maybe not.. then I can keep it. haha. I'll have to post a picture of her wearing it as these pictures didn't do it an ounce of justice! I had fun with this set. Mel pretty much made the box. :o) heehee. I am not one for tinkering with little things. I ain't no Tinkerbell like Mel.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look at what I've been up to! I appreciate it!
