Thanks for always being there for me

Guylou, of Guylou's Inimitability,  has a Thanksgiving/Thanks Challenge that is ending today and this is my entry. The requirements of the challenge are to use one of her wonderful images along with the words Happy Thanksgiving, Thank you or Thanks. I went with a thanks card and used Guylou's Jessica Image. She is a freebie when you join Guylou's site. If you'd like to check out Guylou's and all the wonderful images that she has created, just click on her "button" on the left and it will bring you straight to her site. The problem for me, with this challenge, was how to make a girl with an umbrella fit in with a Thanks card. Luckily late last night inspiration hit and this is what I came up with. The outside says: Through sunshine and rain good friends we'll  remain. The  inside says: Thanks for always being there for me.
The pink and blue cardstock is from SU, the patterned one is from my stash and the white is from Michaels.
The flowers are from my stash and the image was colored with SU water color pencils, except for the metal parts of the umbrella which are colored with a silver gel pen from Michaels. The light pink ribbon and the jewel brad in the middle of the flower is pink and are from Michaels. Thanks for coming and looking at my card.
