checkbook covers-Go Fifth Ave Floral

This is my checkbook cover I did about 4 years ago. If you look closely my edges are all cracked and broken. It really needed to be replaced, or it has been on the to do list for about a year since I got new checkbook covers to stamp.






Yesterday, I got my big order! So I quickly mounted my Fifth Avenue Floral set (113734, $24.95) and used inspiration from Manhattan style watch! Style Watch is a section in the beginning of the catalog that gives hot trends and sets, papers and accessories that are all designed to go together.
The colors are baja breeze, night of navy and kiwi kiss. I used one of my favorite ribbons-the satin kiwi! It only took about 10 minutes, but I just needed right set for inspiration!
Now to attack my to other list of projects to complete, but this set makes me want to go make some card and stationary sets!!!
Don't have a new catalog yet? Stampin Up is running a promotion for month of February- if you place an order on-line you will get a catalog sent to you for FREE! That is along with current Sale-a-bration promotion.

It looks wonderful! My husband always complained when he needed to take the checkbook somewhere. He'd make sure and let everyone know that the "pretty" check book cover was his wife's!
