Boss's Day Card and Gift Bag

Hi Everyone~~ 
I  have a little story that goes with this card set today..... Soooo please be patient cuz I don't always have a story :D
First off; I am honored with being asked to make cards for my work friends birthdays~~ Guess they Like my creations :)       This past Saturday was Boss's Day Recognition.
I was asked to make a card and gift bag for the gifts we are surprising our Dr. with~~keep in mind our Boss is a she ;)
Well almost a year ago Drs. Dad had passed and God has been giving her a sign from above that she is being watched over.  That sign has been Rainbows in the sky sometimes for no unbenounced reason.  She has been sharing these occurences with us at work.
Well when I was checking my email on friday~~low and behold I was one of the lucky duckies followers chosen on the Flower Soft TV and won a download of Charlie's Ark Flo the Cow by Mike Payne~Very fun and interesting person ~Go read about him here.  Thank you Norene and whoever else!!!  MWAHHHH!!!
As I was scoping out the download surprise I came across this Rainbow Poem by Mike Payne and Just knew that I was going to use it for my Boss's card~~~Can't wait to see her face--maybe I will get pics and share :D

Well thanks for your patience and Here is the Gift Set ~~~~~ I love Easel Cards and  BEWARE I like to show Lots and lots and lots of pics!!!

I used white CS and matted with Soft, subtle blue textured CS.  Wanted to keep colors very soft but in the rainbow spectrum :))
Used SU embossing folders and SB nesties.  
Accented with colored dew drops, viva iced white pearl pen, sheer multi colored ribbon and Wild Orchid flowers.
Used my new Magnolia doo hickey leaf die.
The corners were fancied with a fiskars corner punch.
The front of card was misted with Tsunkineko sparkle shimmer spritz when complete~~Very Sparkly!!!
Inside of card is a pocket embossed with CB Script folder which holds 8 notecards for personal messages.
The base was sponged with pastel chalk inks and added pearls to flower centers.
Spritzed the embossed sheet with Tsunkineko sparkle mist before adhering the Poem.
I recessed the poem using SB Mega curved rectangle nestie and glued to a traced SB Labels 7 nestie.
Using foam tape I adhered the Label 7 frame.   Then added crystal stickles around edge of poem :)
These 2 pics show the shimmer mist and dimensionalization!!

The following are close-ups of Wild Orchid flowers........But do go check out all the wonderful flowers at Bizzy Becs Store ~~HERE~~
Homemade sentiment stickled and spritzed.........

I took a plain white gift bag and stamped with SU Baroque Motifs Swirl inked with Brillance Twilight.  
The Soft Sand Inked butterfly is Inkadinkado.
The Rich Cocoa butterfly is Studio G
My Boss's Gift Set~~ What do you think??
I thinkin it may bring tears to hear eyes~~we'll see~~  I will let you know in a day or two :)
