Thank You Card for MCT "1,2,3 Challenge"

Once I noticed that there was a new challenge on the My Creative Time blog, I could not wait to make something.  This is my first time posting in a MCT challenge.  I love working with her stamps and dies and I can't seem to get enough of the amazing sentiments and accents she creates.  Here is my Thank You card design for Liz's challenge: Use 1 bow, 2 patterned papers and 3 buttons.

And the inside:

The look I wanted was casual and warm.  I chose this ribbon to complement the garden branches in the decorative paper background, which had a similar design.  The chevron is from the same paper pad with notes of the top pattern in it.  The tag is from solid Kraft paper and stamped with MCT background stamp to soften the look. Was very happy to get the layered dies and put them to good use.

The tools used include:

From My Creative Time: 
Floral Sentiments
So Grateful For You
XL Label Die
Stitched XL Label Die
Script Type Backgrounds

Also, ribbon, BasicGrey paper & buttons, Ranger Archival ink Distress Ink Pad in Frayed Burlap, Ink Blending Tool and cording. 

Many thanks to Emma and her talented DT for the opportunity to participate.  Please post your comment and follow  my new crafty blog while you're here.  Have a great day.
