Ides of March Birthday Card #2

I have two friends with Ides of March birthdays, and this is the second card I made.  Sadly, they didn't get in the mail until March 16th, but I think they will forgive me.  :-)

For inspiration, I turned once again to Freshly Made Sketches and Create with Connie and Mary

I messed up twice (twice!) on the sentiment, and I'm completely out of Lucky Limeade and Pool Party, so I didn't have the option of trashing and trying again.  So I covered.  Once with the flower on the right, and once with a Decorative Label punch on the left.  And then I ordered more In Color paper... :-)

Here's what the twice-mucked card turned into:
Not terrible after all that!  In my humble opinion... hahaha.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
