'Flower Child' Thanks with Embossed Acetate

I did it! I finished up the thank you cards. This one is bright and cheery!

I've used Bo Bunny 'Flower Child' papers, and Acetate for the basic card.
The flowers were in my stash, as were the brads and pearl. The Thank You stamp is Heidi Swapp. I just added the exclamation point with a felt pen.
This is the back of the front of the card. I liked it as it was, so I decided not to cover it up, other than a strip of paper over the area behind the flowers which are on the front.
This is the inside where he can put in a personal note to the recipient. I used black Staz On ink with the Basic Grey, Two Scoops/Swirlie' Stamp on the acetate background.
This is the back of the card. I always add my name and blog address on the back of my cards, but I took the photo first and did that afterwards.
Oh, I forgot to mention, I embossed the front part of the acetate with my Cuttlebug using the 'Clockworks' folder from Provo Craft. You can see it better from the side.

I thought I'd squeeze in one more post for the end of July!
Thank you for visiting! Hope you like it!
