Thank you for your friendship Tag

Created this Thank You Tag by recycling a box panel from Panera Bread restaurant that has the Eiffel Tower on it. 

Thought I had a 'Merci' stamp but did not find one in my huge stamp collection. So, I  embossed 'Merci Thank You' using  a Cuttlebug embossing folder and fussy cutting out the words I wanted. Stamped a Hero Arts sentiment.

Inked edges. Added feather, flowers, gem and ribbon.
