Quick thank you card

So as some of you may know, I am moving in less than 2 weeks now (OMG I have so much to do! LOL). I also happen to be moving in with my boyfriend. He called me tonight to tell me that his mom bought us a beautiful black/red/white mosaic dinnerware set. It is perfect for us and our new place. So I put together a sweet and simple thank you card for her. I needed some inspiration so I checked some blogs for challenges and came up with these two:

Little Red Wagon has a "house" challenge. Thought this was perfect since it was a housewarming gift (well apartment-warming to be technical, but who is so technical? lol)
Play Date Cafe  has a cute color challenge of eggplant, lime and gray. I just thought this was a unique and challenging color combo so I thought I would give it a shot.

I just love what I found in my mom's stash (thanks again mom for letting me create in your space)

 The paper is from a local paper-by-the-pound store.
The pattern paper, brad and flower are from mom's stash
The house is cut from Don Juan cricut cartridge
The stamp and tag punch are from Stampin Up!
I used the Elegant Eggplant marker for the hand stitching
I hope you like my quick card, and even more I hope my boyfriend's mom likes it too
