Card in a Box 3D

Hello Everyone,

I was loosing my creative mojo and I turned to my trusty YouTube for ideas. I looked at few different techniques but card in a box caught my attention. I am always fascinated by different card fold. I haven't try this one before so I decided to give it a go.
Here is youtube link on how to do it, if you would want to try

Here is the card:

I've started with craft cardstock to create the base for the card. If you follow the instructions on YouTube video it's really easy. I have pulled out my pattern paper. I don't use pattern paper often. This was from recollection. It was sitting in my drawing for long... long time. I feel that if I will use pattern paper then I won't have this pretty paper anymore.... Yes I know I am hoarder... my addiction confession: " Hi My name is Stacy and I am hoarder" ... See I can admit to it :)
I glued my panels to the card base and use seweasy stitch stamper. I am not a fan of this product but since I have it I will use it. I couldn't get a straight line.... so I gave up and made all the lines tilted. Let's call it a design :P I have out the box card together and I am ready to decorate.

I have stamped all my flowers I used JustRite seeds of summer stamp... it seems to be my "go to" stamp for flowers. I did very and I mean very easy colloring. I just lay down a color and then used darker tone to highlight. I normally would spend hours on coloring perfectly and laying tons of layers of different shades and colors. Not this time. There were just too many of them. I fussy cut all of them and I have glued to the tabs inside the box. One thing I found that I had to check my positioning of the flowers to make sure that the card can still close.
For the sentiment: I used thank you from Just rite seeds of summer and for the main quote I got it from affirmation ( "positive thinking") book. It says that if a person constantly see it and repeat it than the person would healthy. I thought what a perfect card to put it on. So I wrote it.

The bonus to this card that I can close it and mail it easily. Although when recipient opens the card it would look like it has a lot of embellishments. There is tons of space to write on this card as well.

That's it for this card. Any thoughts?
