H2H Challenge: GRATITUDE

Hello, friends;
Gratitude is an amazing feeling...and showing someone how grateful you are at that person is even a greater feeling.
For today's challenge over @ H2H, we were asked to create something to show gratitude.
A while ago, I made this card but never share it in my blog because the supplies used are not CTMH.
I liked this card so much that I decided to use it as my inspiration to make my card for today's challenge.
Take a look at my new card:
* 6" x 6" card
* 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of black CS
* 2" x 5" piece of black CS
* 1-3/4" x 5" piece of  design paper [non CTMH]
* yellow ribbon
* For Every Ocassion stamp set
 * 1" wide strip of White Daisy CS

To make the flowers, I cut the FLOWER1 using AP on page 21 with the SHIFT option on at the following sizes: 3/4", 1-1/4", 1-3/4", and 2-1/4...cut four pieces of each size to make two flowers...if you only wish to make one flower, then cut two pieces of each size.  

I added three jewels/rhinestones on the left bottom corner [can barely be seen on this photo] and the message was stamped on white CS using the For Every Ocassion stamp set.
Here are the rules to participate:
