Thank you flower

Its Friday so I am now in Sunny Ramsgate with my Parents for the weekend.

I got the idea for this card from some stamps I saw at a craft show so this is my take on them the stamps I have embossed 2 pieces of card with 2 different cuttlebug folders the inked them with Adirondack ink Raisin the flower is made from a Chloe large flower stamp I stamped it twice and stuck them together and rolled the edge so it was not flat on the card.added some glossy accents in the centre made a small thank you tag and add a singe gem for a bit of bling.

Challenges to follow.
