LP #72: floral stamps & SSS: Anything Goes

I am sharing a card I made for Limelight Papercrafts LAST challenge #72 Floral Stamps.  Mandy had her third child and has decided to discontinue the challenges. 
I wish her much happiness with her growing family!
I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

The first challenge was to use floral stamps with the sketch below.
I was inspired by a thread at Two Peas where people were sharing their teacher appreciation ideas.  The saying on this card is from a post by "Cori". She shared that she gave a flower and tag/card with this saying. How cute! 
This will be paired with a flower and is for our little guy's preschool teacher. 

I stamped the flowers on companion papers and used different gems for the centers.

Here's the cute little sketch from Limelight Papercrafts:

Stamps:  flowers by Autumn Leave (I think); "Harold's ABC" by Lawn Fawn; "thank you" by Hero Arts
Ink: Memento (my favorite!) and Distress in Weathered Wood
Papers: Amy Butler for K&Company "AB Lotus" pad and cardstock
Other: MS Circle Cutter for 4" circle base, "George" cart 3 1/2" circle, scallop scissors, baker's twine by The Twinery, gems, pop dots, MS butterfly punch

Thanks for looking!

Kelly this is awesome! Love the strips across the card. Lots like ribbon. Also the flowers are very pretty.

Kelly this is such a fun little sentiment and a super cut card. I just know the teacher will love it.
