Thank You card for Karen

Now I know that Karen has received her card OK, I'll share some pictures of it... I wanted it to be a surprise!
I made this for Karen Burniston, who has been just absolutely lovely to me since we came across each other on-line a couple of months ago.
I used her new Square Card with Ornate Edge Pop 'n Cuts base die, with the Funky Label insert (it's such a gorgeous classic shape), and the Funky Label Framelits set for making the layers under the sentiment.
The 'Thank You' is from Tim Holtz's Typeset die, and the papers from Tilda's 'Sewing Bird' pad.
 For the outside, I made an opening door (to give me somewhere to write a message), by folding over some card, and cutting all but one side in an oval cutter from the Wavy Label Framelits set. The light pink card behind it is cut from the same set.
After I took the pictures, I also added a little key brad to the side of the door, which swivels round, and can keep the door closed.
 I coloured some Tim Holtz Crinkle ribbon with Distress Stains, and added a little metal bird brad from my stash, and some flowers from Tim's Flower Garland die.
The flower centres were cut with a punch from
