Good Luck on your Move!, HMFMC185, Anything Goes, Optional Sketch

Hello Crafters. I also have a Midway Reminder card for HMFMC's current challenge. My card was created for a very special person moving away....  sigh.... so sad.... :(
It's my take on 2015's first Challenge at House-Mouse & Friends MC!
 http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/2015/01/new-year-new-challenge-hmfmc185-themed.html
Our Teamie, Natascha, is hosting and has chosen the theme: "Anything Goes",  with this optional sketch to try.  I followed it, but left out the sentiment panel, adding flowers instead.
 
Hope you will be able to join us at HMFMC, (the Challenge found HERE), as there are a couple of fabulous prizes up for grabs, like this awesome LOT of brand New Stampabilities House-Mouse Designs Stamps from the Mousey Team....

Sorry a good friend is moving away. Your card turned out beautiful, and I am sure they will treasure it. Very creative to use this stamp for moving and with the string and burlap, it works beautifully. So many details and textures.

Hugs
