Card Concept # 2

I was low on thank you cards, so I thought I would do one more for this challenge. 
Again I used the canvas Impression Plate for texture.
The flower is from PTI Flower Garden.
I cut the angle die,
and added a strip of Pure Poppy striped pattern paper.
the 'thanks' is from Embroidered Blooms.
You can go HERE to play along.
