Bamboo Set

Honestly when I first saw the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches I thought it looked incomplete. But after looking at the DT creations, I decided it was a really creative design so I should give it a try. Here is their sketch:
I found this pretty bamboo paper in my file. I think I had bought it for a scrapbook of a tropical island trip we took but never used it. It is from Paper Studio. I have been working on a gift set for a few days with this paper and didn't yet have the "thank you" so went with that for the sketch.
The flower is from SU done in Melon Mambo and fussy cut. The stripes are from SU's Gorgeous Grunge. and the sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo. And because thank yous are really special, I added a big sparkly rhinestone as the flower center. And now that the card is done, I'm really loving the sketch.
Here are the other cards in the set.
Now I just need to design a gift bag to hold them.
