Painted Seasons, Beauty Abounds, Thank You Card

I have this "Painted Seasons" set and I'm wondering what I saw on the net that intrigued me to want to own this set.  I have no idea.  So I set out to make a card using it and this is what I came up with.
The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Cajun Craze card stock.  This piece was cut in half on the 8-1/2" side.  This card is folded at the top and opens at the bottomI cut an Early Espresso layer 3-3/8" x 4-5/8".  The Cajun Craze layer on top of that is cut 3-1/4" x 4-1/2".  

I cut a 3-1/4" x 1-7/8" piece from a sheet from the "Painted Seasons" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I taped it to the bottom of the front focal panel.  Normally I stamp my wording first but I wasn't sure where I was going with this card so I just went out of my normal sequence.  I had cut a 3/8" x 3-1/4" strip of Early Espresso strip to cover the top part of the DSP.  

I stamped the flower from the "Painted Seasons" set using Cajun Craze ink and the center of the flower was colored in with the Early Espresso marker.  I fussy cut it out.  Though if I were to make another card like this, I would just stamp the flower and die cut it with the stitched circle die.  

I punched out 3 Shaded Spruce spring pieces using the "Sprig" punch.  I used glue dots to hold them in place and then I added the circle over them using Dimensionals.  

The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set using black Memento ink.

I set the focal panel in place using Dimenisonals.

This was a pretty easy card to make but it is kind of blah.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
