A Million Thanks - Paper Players Challenge #50

This card was especially made for my neighbour, who's help has been outstanding while I have been laid up with a cast on my right foot and a splint on my left knee.  Without saying anything, or my asking, he took one look at me on crutches and started mowing my lawn (sometimes twice a week), and placing my garbage and recycling at the curb while he was doing his own.
I owe him a million thanks.
I made the card with a gift card holder inside using the theme challenge from Paper Players Challenge #50 (Kind Thanks) here  My plan is to buy a gift card from Home Depot and place it in the card.  He's the sort of gentleman who would not take a gift or money, but he hasn't turned down a gift card yet.  In the winter he has been known to shovel my driveway.
And this gentleman has had both knees replaced, so I guess he knows what I am going through.
So Gus - this card is for you.

Stamps: Sail Away, Pretty Postage, Word Play
Inks: Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Papers: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Harlequin Texture Plate, 5/8" Whisper white Grosgrain ribbon, Oval die #2, Postage Stamp punch, Curly Label Punch

I made an envelope to match the card

On the inside I made a gift card holder, using designer jpaper to match the outside of the card. 

This shows the gift card opened.  I used the slit punch to make openings into which the card will fit.
