Thank You CARD, cqc165

Oh, my it took me all week to finish this card.  I had a set back where I was admitted to the emergency room so while I was laying there on the gurney I was thinking of I need to finish my card design for the challenge ... now that's an illness for sure ... card making addiction! 
Check out the colourq challenge #165 The Royal Court Design Team with their "LOVE" ly color palette:  Real Red, Regal Rose, Glorious Green and (Cool Caribbean, a color SU should bring back).  These colors are perfect for Any Occasion, Holiday or even a Thank You card.
This card was CASed and INspired with slight changes in colors, background image and sentiment whose original can be seen HERE and below by this talented artist:  Catherine Pooler.  Check out her blog for a video tutorial on her card and more!
