Bunches of Flowers and Thanks

I wanted to make a special card expressing some thanks to a dear family who traveled a great distance to be at our family birthday party this past weekend.  Such dear friends.  How great it was to see them and have them celebrate with us.
The stamp set I used is Verve "Joyful Blooms" and also used the corresponding die cuts.  My card was inspired by a card by Jackie Pedro, a Verve DT member.   Here is the link for her card.
Kraft by Kraft Outlet.  Bashful Blue by Stampin'Up
