Give Thanks

Evening Folks.
Bit late posting tonight but had a bit of a difficult day today.  Unfortunately we had a funeral to attend today.  A friend of ours had a massive heart attack just before christmas and died.  It was so sudden as he was a fit and healthy man.  He was also only 53 years old, the same age as my husband.  It was a lovely service and so many people came to pay their respects.  Just shows that you never know when your journey in this world will end.
Anyway on to todays card:
This is a little thank you card that I put together this evening using my favourite colour of purple.  The image is actually a free stamp set that I got with a magazine a couple of years ago.  I am afraid I can't tell you who it is by or what it is called.  I coloured with promarkers and matted onto some purple and silver card.  The design paper is from Papermania and the purple card is Coredinations.  I put the Coredinations through an embossing folder and did some light sanding.  Added some little flowers, ribbon and gems to finish the card.
Here is a pic of the inside:
