Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you mums out there! ☺
I managed to buy a lovely address book from Borders Bookstore yesterday. Today I eventually got round to making the card after tidying up my crafting areas [storage etc] as I don't have a dedicated room or space to do arty stuff!
We didn't have suitable wrapping paper in the house so I thought I would make a little sleeve to wrap round the address book to match the card and gift tag. The longest length of the A4 sheet wasn't quite long enough so I had to cut 2 strips and adjusted lengths accoringly. The shortest length covering the end pieces of the main strip in a way that you couldnt really any joins at the back.
This is the 'wrap':
This is the actual Mother's Day card along with tag: The gift tag:
