I had printed out a version of "Lilly's Kite" (Digital Paper Craft) for the previous post - but it was too large for my project idea.  Smaller versions were made for that project, but did not want to waste this one... so punched her out with my Scalloped Circle Punch (Marvy Uchida).  She was fast and easy to color, so I spent my time with the layers.  All the DP are from Basic Grey's "Sweet Threads", so I knew they would coordinate beautifully.

Each paper and punched layer has been inked with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. I added a folder tab supporting my sentiment, three punched flowers (Family Treasures) with Micro Beads in the center (these can e seen in the close-up), and a ribbon from stash.
The inside borrows left over papers from the front inked in the same manner.

The image was colored with Copics:
