3 CAS (Clean And Simple), Religious Thank You Cards

Hello Crafters.  Im back today to share three super fast THANK YOUs created this morning for my children's 3 Religious Education Teachers. It was their final class of the year, and so I only had 30 minutes to make three separate cards. yikes! 
These are what I came up with...

Thank You Card 1

Thank You Card 2

Thank You Card 3

These three are a little different, yet very simple, and not quite as fancy as I would have liked them to be.  I didn't have the extra time for adding pearls to main panel or the special crucifix charms I had set aside... nor is the interior decorated, but still, the important thing is that these 3 amazing instructors who have devoted their precious time every Sunday morning - will get a 'thank you' from my children.

Stamps: NONE
Paper: DCWV Luxury Shimmery Stack, Textured Cream CS
Accessories: Marvy Uchida Flower Punch, Pearl Clusters, Satin Ribbon, Darice Religious Embossing Folder
Techniques: Dry Embossing
The flowers were super fast to make as they are just punched out and curled then layered and topped with a pearl from the same cluster of pearls embellishment.  The main panel is dry embossed with the Darice EF then matted onto heavy cream textured CS. Thats it!! 
Didn't know I had it in me to rush and make three!!  LOL!
What do you think of my rushed assembly line-3 card job? :)
