Thank You card

I've done two similar versions of this card but I can only blog this one, the other is for someone who follows my blog and it wont arrive for a few days so I don't want to spoil it for her!

This one is a Thank You card for my neighbour who has uncomplainingly put up with 5 months of renovation works on our house and now we're subjecting her to our garden makeover! We have a right of way over her tiny garden to get to ours so this week her dog has been unable to get out into their garden and she hasn't been able to put her washing out. Walling bricks, sand, cement, cement mixer, etc., have all been piled up in her little garden and all our apologies have been met with "Don't worry, it's fine". She has her hands full with nursing a very sick husband and baking for two local shops too. She's a lovely neighbour and we wouldn't want to live anywhere else! A very big bunch of flowers will be accompanying this card to show our appreciation for her patience and understanding.

For this card I have used:
5" square pearlescent card blank Cuttlebug embossed with Daisy Pattern and Swiss Dots folders
Image is a gorgeous freebie from Meljen's and coloured with Promarkers
Circles cut with Nesties
Mats are from card in my stash
Ribbon from QVC
Kanban Bling clear adhesive gems

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Fresh Brewed Thank You
Totally Papercrafts #31 - Clean and Simple
Crafty Emma's #1 - Anything Goes
