Thank you card with special paper and ribbon

Have you ever received some wonderful paper and ribbon on a gift and just want to reuse it because it is so beautiful!!  That's what happened this past week!! I love this paper and ribbon - I just had to make a card!!  I needed one for someone special who took care of my garden while I was away - perfect!!!
I found some yellow cardstock which coordinated with the paper and glued the decorative paper to my card front.  I cut a piece of ribbon leaving the flagged end, glued the cut end to the inside of the card and added a small piece of double sided tape below the ribbon where the image was going to be.  I watercoloured my heart image (Torico - Birdie Brown), layered it onto yellow and adhered it to my card front over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.  I found this tiny greeting in my stash that was the perfect colour so I distressed its edges and added to my card using 3D foam tape.
