Sorry this is a long post in terms of photos today but I hope you enjoy looking through them and maybe get inspired.  Camellia is a gorgeous set.

On Monday I made a purple and white card that features a purple camellia - you might like to check that one out too.

All the following photos show my note card holder and the note cards that go inside it.  Some are made with this months sets but other are using other oriental sets in the MFP collection.  The front and back are just decorated with papers / dies
