Beer mat memo boards

I've been blogg hopping again and came across this blog with these little memo boards on so heres my version . They are made from 1 & half beer mats, the front of this one has PennyLane papers from MME layed onto brazill card. The Memo board part is a square of white card which I have laminated to make it wipe clean layered onto some pink card.  The butterflies are cut from pink vellum with my new embossing punch from X-cut & decorated with some tiny gems and a bit of silver glitter.
I printed the word notes off and then cut with a die the border is part of the same die just cut on green card.

I thought Iwould have a go at a male version with the other half of the beer mat. I need to get some black ribbon to finish it off. Not sure what the paper is as Sarah (Rainmac) sent it to me for crafty place card swap prize this month I think it was papermania, she very kindly wrote where the papers where from but do you think I can find that piece of paper. I have just used silver Card Candy to embellish this with.
