Thanks a bunch

For this card I've followed the sketch for More than favors wacky Wednesday 62 (a new challenge to me):

The red die cut label shape is matted on to a gold foiled one which, unfortunately, is very difficult to get a photograph, so it looks dark here whereas irl it is a reflective gold. The stamp (don't know the make) was inked with versamark and heat embossing detail gold. The lace, ribbon, sentiment and gems are from sstash and the flowers were part of the prize I won from Crafty Ribbons - you can read about it here. Thank you, so much, Crafty ribbons - I'm linking this for Crafty Ribbons 10: new beginnings. So I've used something old and something new, which is good for these challenges:
