Thank You / Encouragement Card

My hairdresser recently moved to a town that is three hours away.  Of course, I wish she wouldn't have gone, but I wish her every happiness in her new adventure.  This is a card I made for her to thank her for all she has done for me and to encourage her in her new life.  I think it fit her to a "T".  The stamp was from Hobby Lobby and so were the patterned papers.  Aren't they gorgeous?  On the bottom I added rumpled ribbon and a gorgeous button.
Here is a closeup of the layers on the card.  I added clear rhinestones to the swirls on the sentiment and black ones to the four corners of the card.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
