A thank you card

Good morning! At last I'm starting to feel better! Actually went out of the house yesterday, first time for nearly two weeks...still recovering from the excitement! I'm hoping to get down to see my Mum in the next day or two, haven't dared go anywhere near her since the flu got me.... Heaven forbid she catches it!
Anyway, my card today is for the brand new challenge starting today at Fab N Funky, it's hosted by our lovely Wendy and she's chosen a fabulous theme for you -Flowers. We're o lucky to be sponsored for this challenge by Lemon Shortbread who gave us some sweet images to play with. I chose to use this little sweetie, she's available here. I've coloured her with copics and printed out the flowers again, shaped and attached with silicone to add a bit of extra dimension. I added tiny gems to the centres of the embossed daisies and a little 'thank you' tag amongst the flowers.
Thanks for visiting today, I hope you'll find the time to pop over to Fab N Funky to take a peek at what my lovely teamies have designed for to enjoy, of course we'd love it if you joined us with a beautiful floral creation of your own!
Stay away from germs and have a great day!
