Autumn Cards

A few months ago, my friend and college roommate got married (YAY!!) and I was invited to her bridal shower.  After finding out what her wedding colors were, I decided to make her a set of cards that she could use for whatever she needed.  Her colors were "anything autumn."  Here's what I came up with:
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Company); patterned paper (Imaginisce); stamps (Imaginisce, Heidi Grace Designs, Studio G); ink (American Crafts, Ranger); ribbon (Offray, Pebbles, Inc.); dies and die cut machine (Cuttlebug by Provo Craft); border punches (Martha Stewart Crafts, EK Success); paper flowers (Prima); corner rounder (WRMK); glitter glue (Ranger)

 I made her 4 of each card, making the gift a dozen cards.  I wish I would have taken some closeup pictures of the individual cards to show some of the detail, but I didn't. :(  I did, however, decorate a brown kraft paper gift bag to match the cards....
Supplies: patterned paper (Imaginisce); card stock (DCWV, Bazzill, WRMK, Provo Craft); buttons (My Mind's Eye); twine (Pebbles, Inc.); ribbon (Offray); paper punch (Martha Stewart Crafts); die cuts and die cutting machine (Cuttlebug by Provo Craft); templates (Kiwi Lane Designs) Aspen, Tags

Personally, I'd be thrilled to receive this gift.  But I'm a paper-holic... What do you think- would you be okay at the receiving end of this type of gift?  Or would you feel a bit cheated?

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
