Thank You #1

A lady at work, ask me (yeah, ME! - I'm pretty excited, too) to make her a Thank You card.  She needs it in a few days.  And, she likes my work.  Wow super wonderful, huh?  Here's the catch, she said that I can make it any way I want, no particular style, theme, or colors.  Just 'thank you'.  Sounds rather 'free', huh?  But, I find it a bit challenging.  So, I have made two cards.  (both are posted today, just different posts)
I looked for some inspiration, and found it @ My Favorite Things blog.  Here is their sketch:
Here is my card:
Card #1
I really love making girl-y girl cards!  Pinks, flowers, crochet trim, seam binding, oh my!  I used Basic Grey pattern papers.  Both are from my scrap stash.  So, at least 2/+ years old.  The typewriter paper is from Stampin' Up!: First Edition DSP.  The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock.  The brown mat is Soft Suede cardstock.  The pink mat is Pink Pirouette cardstock.  The flower is from Prima flowers.  It's sitting on top of a tag from Martha Stewart.  The crochet trim piece is from a big box craft store.  The multi-loop bow is made from seam binding.  The color of seam binding I use is actually Very Vanilla.  I dyed it.  I used Pretty in Pink classic re-inker and Regal Rose re-inker.  I think that it matches really well!  The button is from my 'fancy/wedding' button stash.  The 'Thank You' is from Stampin' Up!: Fresh Cuts; which is retiring this month.
Give me your opinion.  Let me know if this is a card you would love to give/get.  If my co-worker doesn't purchase this one, it will go up for sale in my Etsy shop: Designs by Sharon.
