Second Chance...

I had printed out another copy of the "Dried Flowers" image that I used in the last post from The Stamping Boutique - and being the thrifty soul that I am, I colored it up for a quick birthday card.  Really like how it came out using this great grey background paper with a white script.
The Recollections CS I used for the base is so heavy that it will not stay closed even after scoring and using a bone folder multiple time to burnish the fold.  I ended up using a large arrow paper clip to hold it shut for the photo so you can see that the front of the card is cut short to show off more of that script DP and the three pearls embellishments.  I used left over pink & black CS from my previous post to layer the image for the front.
For the inside I used a Martha S Happy Birthday border punch [punched only once] in left over card stock from the project.  After the sentiment was cut off I still had the piece left for the message.

The image was colored with my Copics:
