Thank you

Hello my friends! I hope you are having a great Wednesday. here is gray, windy and rainy, but glad to be inside and have something to show today.
I think this card is simple, but the flower gives it a really nice touch. I started my card with a piece of White Heavy Weight CS, matted it with a piece of Innocent Pink and some DP from PTI, stitched it, then added the curvy shape (made with my Cricut machine) and the stripe piece of CS, and sewed the border too. I stamped the sentiment from Inside & Out Set (Gina K. Designs) and added a layered of Prima flowers and a touch of Green Ribbon.
I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Sketch Challenge: 2S4U
Monochromatic Challenge: Caarvarks.
Layer Challenge: Stamp Something.
Flower Challenge: Stampin' Sisters in Christ.
Stitching: Lucy's Cards Blog.
