Thank you - another Stamping 411 sketch challenge

I started making this card first, but when I went to put the parts  together I couldn't find colourful "Thank you" part.  I searched high and low and couldn't find it, so I made another card that I posted yesterday - and make it a combination Mother's Day card and Stamping 411 sketch challenge. Does that every happen to you?
Today, while I was cleaning up, I found it , so I decided to finish the card I started.  Thus a second Stamping 411 Challenge card
To make this card, I started with shiny cardstock, and added some alcohol to reinkers to make my own alcohol ink.  The colours Pixie Pink, Real Red, Garden Green, and Sunshine Yellow were randomly dropped onto the cardstock and allowed to blend at will.
When dry, the phrase "Thank you" was embossed in black at an angle on some vellum, which was torn to fit over the left hand corner.  The vellum was attached with vellum adhesive.
Paper:  Garden green, basic black, confetti white, shiny cardstock, vellum.
Other:  Crimper, small glue dots, scallop circle punch (to make the flower) and vanilla smooch, finial embossing folder and big shot.
