Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 19!

It's friday! Time to play along with Taylor's sketch challenge! I really liked this sketch. I decided to make the center part of the sketch the "inside" of the card and the rest the "outside" of the card. Maybe it makes more sense to see it....Here we go!

Here is the card closed and do you know what is keeping it shut? That nifty little fancy pants pin. Doesn't it look like the butterfly pin is among the flowers, just like in the
I used my nestabilities dies to create the circles. I cut and scored my card first and then ran it through my cuttlebug to cut the circle.
This is what it looks like open. I added the little happy birthday sentiment too. I love that my colored image is on the inside, that way the recipient can look at it a little longer....since it takes some work to color.
I definitely wanted to show you a close up of my coloring. Isn't this the cutest bunny! Looks so cheery gift wrapping his carrot. It won't be long and the bunnies will be availing themselves to the harvest of carrots around here.
