Kind Thanks for the Paper Players {50}

Just a quick post to play along with The Paper Players - 'Kind Thanks' challenge -
 [make a Thank You card].  
This card needs little explanation but you can see I used up more scraps and did some punch art for this CAS card.  
 I started with a white card stock base and embossed with "Framed Tulips" embossing folder. Next I took another scrap of white cs and ran it through the BS with the "Square Lattice" embossing folder and matted with another scrap of melon mambo cs, then glued to the front center.
I punched a few sets from the "Two Step Bird" punch, in various greens and glued down a few of the branches .
I then stamped some flowers from "Punch Potpourri" in melon mambo on WW cs and the bird from the same set in pear pizzazz on PP card stock.  
I punched two sets of flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch and curled with a bone folder. I glued down the branches and a few flowers; I also popped a few flowers up with dimensionals. 
I created the vase using the oval punch, rounded with a bone folder and shaded with some pear pizzaz ink, then popped up over the stems. Then I glued the other branches next to the vase and added the pretty birdie with a pop dot.
Then sentiment was stamped in EE ink on WW cs and punched with an oval punch, also popped up with dimension.
Here's a peek at the inside with shades of the front. Done!
I hope you liked my "Thank You" card for the Paper Players challenge.
