Stampin' Up Sentiment stamps used as a background for a Thank You card

Hi guys! I actually created two cards last night, but I will show them separately. Here is the first
This is a Early Espresso card base with a piece of distressed Crumbcake, which I have collected all my Thank You sentiments and stamped on in Crumbcake. The stamp sets used are Because I Care (R), Curly Cute, Just Believe, Silhouette Sentiments (R), So Many Thanks, Thanks for Caring (R), Tiny Tags, Trendy Trees, Upsy Daisy and Whimsical Words. I wrapped some Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon around and glued it in place, I then stamped You're too Kind from Whimsical Words in Espresso and cut out a decorative label punch from some scrap patterned paper from this card. I sewed on a retired Chocolate Chip button and called this card done... 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Clean & Simple sketch, which was so good, I used it twice... I am entering this into the Wee Memories Sentiment Focus challenge, and also the Make it Monday background stamp challenge.
Thanks for dropping in, and I'll have another card to show you a bit later :)
Happy Stamping!
