Blooming Box & Coordinating Card - Hand Stamped Sentiments #67

Anything goes - is the challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments #67 here . The idea is to create a set, anything that suits my fancy - a 3D project with a coordinating card.
The project I created is a mixture of old and new, current and retired - not something I usually do, but the colors went so well with what I had in mind.
Here is my project - a Blooming  box and its coordinating card:

Stamps: Fine Flourish, Happy Greetings
Inks: Tangerine Tango marker and ink, So Saffron
Papers: So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Haiku Designer Paper (retired), Tangerine Tango, More Mustard.
Accessories: Vintage Wall Paper embossing folder, 5 Petal punch, Boho Blossom Punch, 1 1/4" square punch, 5/8" Victoria Crochet Trim, metallic brads, small oval punch, 1 3/4 X 7/8" oval punch, Daffodil Delight pompom trim, Rhinestones

Close up of flower embellishments on card.

Larger Flower:  Made using 5 petal punch and Boho blossom Punch (2 of the 5 petal punch in So Saffron, and one of the medium sized flowers Boho Blossoms punch in tangerine Tango)
Rhinestone in the center

Smaller Flower: Made using Boho Blossoms punch (4 per flower)

You can't see it very well, but the Very Vanilla background the flowers are mounted on are stamped with the Fine Flourish stamp in so Saffron.
