Heads & shoulders above the rest

I'm so excited to be heading back East later this week to visit with one of my dearest friends. I only get to see her every couple of years although we speak on the phone all the time. I know that she is going to absolutely spoil me while I'm there so I've made up a thank you card in advance (luckily she doesn't blog so I can safely post the card here).
I found this vintage image in a Dover Sampler (sign up and you get an email each week with a link to a selection of free clipart, vintage images, colouring pages, etc) and the sentiment I wanted to use just jumped into my brain.

I chose to use these very pretty papers from Basic Grey (Kioshi pack) and a sketch from The Sweet Stop. I found this vintage-feel floral rbbon in a basket of scraps almost a year ago and this is the first time I've been able to use it.
