I used some retired, but very pretty designer series paper for my cards, and the sentiments were also from a retired stamp set, Paisleys and Posies. It was just so suitable for the card I was handing out.
Embellishments were taken from my containers of die cuts, because I always cut more than I need, to have flowers etc to decorate a quick card.
The sentiment inside is also from Paisley and Posies, but the kangaroo is from Animal Outing. Most people were so thrilled to receive a card, the exception was border patrol, who aren't allowed to accept anything, not even chocolate as another of our travelling group found out. She did ask me to open the card and show it to her, but she still wasn't able to keep it.
