Flowers Box card

Good morning from another snowy day in northern Wisconsin!

I wanted to share a box card I recently made.  This is the card closed.
The background is made with white tissue paper on tan card stock.  I then stamped the flowers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and colored them in with water color pencils and blended with water.  This card is held closed with a punched border strip that has small pieces of Velcro on the back.
When the card is opened, the box is revealed!
I used punched circles to create the birds and their wings are made with stamped flower parts cut out and attached to the back of the birds.  The fence is made using a Martha Stewart border punch and then scored on my Martha Stewart score board.  Using my Cuttlebug and a die, I punched the sentiment from a paint chip.  I finished it off by adding some flowers that I received from a new friend.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge APRIL SHOWERS AND/OR SPRING FLOWERS

 I wonder if SNOW showers would have qualified...?
