Digi Haven DT Card - Thanksgiving or Thank You

It's challenge time again at Digi Haven, this time out theme is, "Thanksgiving or Thank You" and we're sponsored by the wonderful Beccy Muir of Beccy's Place.  Beccy has a shop full of gorgeous digis, as well as a huge number of free images, such as the one I've used on my card, you'll find it here.
I've gone for a bit of a twist on the thanksgiving theme, choosing Psalm 106 as my inspiration.  I computer generated the sentiment, adding tiny gems to emphasise the Lord's name.
Using just one patterned paper is quite unusual for me, this one is My Mind's Eye, I've used an EK Success punch along one edge to add a bit of interest to my simple layout.  More texture was needed, so I added some wide satin ribbon and a large bow, topped with a smaller twine bow, then I stuck on a twine threaded chunky button to continue the homespun look.
I coloured the bucket of flowers with my usual Promarkers, then fussy cut it out, raising it up with foam pads on the card.  A few coloured pearls give a pretty finish.
