Thanks a Bunch!

Hello friends! This is a very quick post from me. We're having a veterinary crisis at home. Rosie, the elderly matriarch of our furry brood, is unwell. She was diagnosed with cancer last year. She valiantly battled the disease and survived the gruelling treatment. But she hasn't been "herself" the past couple of weeks and I cannot help but fear its the dreaded C rearing its ugly head again. I'm taking her to the vet. I hope I'm overreacting, I hope it's just the flu.

Here's a thank you card I made for my superstar friend who made some canine-friendly chicken soup for my Rosie.

The card measures 4.5"x3.5" and will go with a box of my friend's
favourite chocolates (She will enlist my help to finish! :-D).
The background papers are from an old faceless nameless pack.  

The image is from WMS Spring Baskets set, coloured with Promarkers.
The greeting is from WMS Compact Sentiments, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black.
To finish: red bling and sheer orange ribbon.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from WMS Say It Loud.

Some challenges for this card:

Tuesday Morning Sketches #248: Sketch
Waltzingmouse Fanatics #17: Colours
Crafty Sentiments: AG
Word Art Wednesday #131: AG Uplifting
