A thank you card

I had a lovely time back in England and did some much needed stash topping up :-) My suitcase still had plenty of space left over but unfortunately card and paint is heavy and I hit my weight limit before I managed to fill everything up! Oh well, I have enough to last me a couple of months (lol!) will just have to make another trip back sometime and another trip to my favourite craft shop in the world ;-)

I also got to catch up with friends and meet a very adorable new young man called Samuel. I will post the card I made for him another day (I seem to have quite a long draft list at the moment and the internet has not been playing ball the past few weeks so I have lots of cards to come).

Anyhoo, I made this card using Lavinia Stamps Zentangle small flowers and stupidly decided to fussy cut them all out (you would think one day I would learn how much I hate it!!). Underneath (although it can barely be seen) is the memory box Tupelo Circle and the paper is from a First Editions pad. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions and the ribbon, metal corners and gems are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
