"Thank you for being a friend", My Minds Eye Challenge 15

My Minds Eye has great challenges and I always buy paper to participate and then never get around to it. They have a great challenge right now with an easy sketch, so I'm finally getting around to participating.
The Challenge: Design a Thank You  layout or other project based on this sketch:

What a simple sketch and amazing papers to work with. I used paper from the Lost and Found line from My Minds Eye, both Market Street and Madison Avenue collections. It's all glittery and fun! Here is my take on the challenge:
I cut some flowers from the Tattered Flower die by Tim Holtz which I'm now in love with and added a cool antique brad to the center if the flower.
I finally attempted one of the cool ribbon roses I've been seeing all over the place and absolutely love the end result. I used some of the rockin' new ribbon they have in at Altered Art and Scrap Playround to make it.
My last flower I made out of a strip of MME paper and a boarder punch. I also got to use my awesome new button punch. I added lots of Vintage Photo Distress Ink ink and Sandy Beach Glimmer Mist to this layout which was very scary for me. That's something that's totally out of my norm but I might have to do more often cuz I'm diggin' the final outcome.
I added a punched tab with the year to the side the of my picture. I used the Opposites Attract and the All Mixed Up font cartridges from Cricut for my wordage.
