Gift Set - 6 cards & envelopes complete

I will enter the above card in the Moxie Fab World Challenge: Use at least 10 embellishments
There are 12 pearls plus button brads, a flourish and and butterfly. 
I think this is my favorite from the collection. 
The inside of each card has a spray of 3 flowers in the same shade of blue. I will include some tags layered and embellished with flowers along with a choice of sentiments: Thank You -Thinking of you - warm wishes - Happy Birthday. Would you enjoy receiving this  for a present? Would you purchase one for a friend? What would you consider a good price? 
This was a fun project and I bet I could find 3 or four more ways I could embellish it, but sometimes I just have to stop myself. 10 embellishments may seem extreme, but I don't think so.
Thanks for visiting. Leave a comment and I'll return the favor.
