Happy Birthday set

I'm into sets in a big way at the moment! I have started making them for my Madeit shop and that's why I haven't been entering challenges [or posting] as much lately.

I was inspired to add the finishing touches to the card and the bookmark with my spica pen by this week's CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge - Bling it Up!. My bling is a little understated though, but that's the way I like it. :)
Scroll down for the close-ups that show where I've added the sparkles.

Happy Birthday - Set

The set comprises of a birthday card, a bookmark and a notebook. I used the Kaisercraft Pets Paradise "Companion" 12x12 paper (see the set here) which only has pawprints down one side - the rest of it is useable for any occasion, though this was the only sheet I had and now it's mostly gone!

Here are some closeups of the three items:


This one shows the spica pen I used on the flower and the strip:


The bookmark:

I used a mini glue dot on the loop of the ribbon to hold it in place.

And finally, the notebook:
