Hello Notelets - Penny Black Saturday Challenge

What a scorcher it's been today, 30° to be precise, and there's not much drop in temperature yet (it's 10pm)! I'll never be able to sleep as our bedroom is in the loft! Anyway, just finished my Penny Black Saturday Challenge so thought I'd get it posted as will be pretty busy in the next few days so won't be doing much blogging. I've kind of bent the rules as I haven't exactly made a card to give to a friend although I know the theme is Friendship. Instead I've made a set of notelets for my friend who is moving to Switzerland on Sunday! I want to give her these notelets so she can send a little hello back to her friends in France once she gets settled in her new home. I've included matching envelopes, and I've also made a little presentation box for them. So here they are;

This is what I used;

-Penny Black Transparent Set - Bubbly
-Paper Mania Colossal Paper - Vibrant
-Watercolour pencils to colour image
-Paper Punches (ornate square and flower)
-Studio G Clear Stamps - Hello
-Ladybirds cut from paper I have in stash
-A few gems, ribbon, inking and doodling just for good measure!
-The box is made using the Crafter's Companion Board and then decorated with Decopatch
