A thank you card

Hi Everyone,
It's Sunday afternoon...and I'm starting to go into mourning.  The weekend is over...  :(

Anyway, I'm back again, posting one of many many thank you cards that I need to make.  These cards are for people in Arkansas who took time out to write me letters pertaining to my job.  It was so nice to talk to all of them this summer...makes me want to get in my car and drive over there (except the 16 hours through the midwest are a bit daunting).

Anyway, I sort of goofed up on this card.  The flower (MFT die) really should have been stacked a little bit differently (One on top of the other rather than scattered).  But my girls seem to like it so hopefully the recipient will too.  It's got a ton of Swarovski crystals to make up for it and a Basic Grey brad in the center.  This was the type of day where I kept dropping things:  dropped tape, lost swarovski's as they flipped off the tweezers, oy!  CASEd this card from Stephanie Marshall's blog, Stamping Impressions (I love you Pinterest).  The paper is from My Mind's Eye (Old stash) and the dies are from MFT.  Sentiment and that die cut are from Stampin Up.  Enjoy!  Hope to get some more cards in this week.  Thanks for stopping by!  Margaret
This card will be entered into the Fashionable Stamping Challenges--handmade flowers
