Peep Challenge Gratitude

I hope your week is going well. Winter has found it's way here. We finally got snow about a week ago and it has been very cold since. I hope it is warmer where you are.
Today I wanted to share a card I made for the 1st Peeps Challenge of the year hosted by Rhonda. It revolves around gratitude and thankfulness. We were to make a card to thank someone and then make sure we SEND IT!!
The challenge is going on all month so if you would like to play along too we would love to have you join us.
This is what I came up with

I got the inspiration for this card from Melissa Phillips. She made one like it last year but I put my own spin on it.
I started with a piece of floral digi paper that I got from this Etsy shop. Next I added a piece of Lavender Moon Cardstock to the bottom half of the card that I embossed with the Linen Impression Plate. After that I stamped the sentiment from the PTI Morning Glories Set on Vintage Cream cardstock then distressed it with Chai ink. When I was done with that I attached it to the bottom of the card and machine stitched it. The flower was made with Vintage cream felt and Beautiful Blooms #2 Dies. The leaves were made with the Delightful Dahlia dies and Simply Chartreuse felt. A Plum Pudding Button, some purple ribbon from my stash and a Vintage Cream scalloped piece at the bottom finish it off.
This card is going to a special friend as a small token of my appreciation for the all the extra things she does for me. I hope she likes it.
That's all for now I will be back with more Valentines things to share with you soon. Until then I hope you have a great night and as always thanks for stopping by.
