Lucy in pink

I've got no idea where I got the little card with this quote on:

"Thank you", said Lucy, "I will take them home and give them some water. Then I will plant them in my garden."

I think it was among a bag of ephemera I got a long time ago. It had been in my bits and bobs box for ages, along with the piece of acetate with swirls that I stuck over it. The card blank was run though my eBosser using an embossing folder and then brushed with tattered rose distress ink The colouring on the image was done with a copic.
