Geometric card and gifts

Hi there friends, how's your Saturday going
so far? We had sun and a bit of rain here
 today mostly. Pouring down now too.
 It didn't stop us helping our son 
hanging a large garden gate today luckily. 
My OH made it for him, I helped our son
 do some gardening too. Now he knows which
 are weeds and which are plants....I hope ;)
Getting to grips with his new garden at last.
As soon as I came back I started my card
 for this weeks 'Less is More' challenge,
which is.....
That had me stumped for a bit then I 
remembered some stamps I had with all
sorts of shapes on.
 A plan was forming! I had some left over 
 lilac/purple card with a linen type ombre look.
 I had recently designed it for several projects
I have been making as presents for relatives
we are seeing soon.
 Yipee a stay in the lovely Lake District at a
 hotel we like with a pool.....can't wait to
just go on long walks and relax soon ;)
(Pics of the gifts I made below my LIM card).
Anyway enough of my usual rambling lol,
 here is my card.Sorry it is a tad photo heavy
Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)
Hello, LIM, CAS
White Linen card
Lilac/Purple Linen look Ombre card I designed
Clearly Besotted stamps
WPlus9 sentiment stamp
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Hero Arts Ombre ink
Little Things sequins
My gift designs
All made digitally btw. (sorry should have said earlier).
Gift boxes (rather too full of chocs here)
I designed this Ombre card and gave it
 a Linen look also.  Then I added some
 flowers and cut the shape of the gift box.
I put some yummy Lindt truffles inside
wrapped in cellophane and tied with
 matching lilac ribbon. I stuck a flower on
 top & attached a heart gift tag too.

You can see the Ombre card design better here.
Elderflower Presse drink with gift tag.
I covered a notepad with another design.
I made a set of three of these cards each
 (with various sentiments) and made
matching envelopes too.I used a punch 
on the back of the envelope also.
Also made this one to match the other
 set of three cards too. I like this
one best and wished now I had just made
four of these to begin with arghh !
I will give a set of each gifts to my relatives,
hope they like them ! It will make a
 change from jewellery anyway lol !
Thanks for reading if you made it this far ;)
