Repeat or Rut?

The last card I made with the pull out book mark was fun to make and I loved it so much, I decided to make another one.  I needed a birthday card for a friend so I chose these colors that are her favorites and they are the colors for one of the challenges.  Don't you love it when you can use a sketch and colors and themes of challenges all in one card?
I did not take multiple photos of the different pieces this time.  The beautiful floral image and butterfly, which I colored with Copics,  are by From the Heart. There is a sentiment about time on the lower half of the bookmarker.
The Happy Birthday die cut is by Spellbinders.
Again, as for the last book mark, I used a die to cut the top of the blue backing.
