Just saying, Hi- card

This was a hard challenge, at Tiddly Inks challenge blog we were to make a card, but only use one layer.  The biggest problem i have is that when i color with my copics it bleeds through, so i really need to mat or cut out what i color.  Seeing as i normally cut out my image, i thought i'd try this challenge without cutting out my image to make it a challenge for me.

What i did:
I enlarged the image and because i use Word (i need to start using my Photoshop) i had to "wrap" my png image like it was "in front of the text" otherwise it wouldn't let me drag it off the page.  (The other option would have been to cut my paper at the point i wanted the image it be cut...) I selected the "2 columns" and then I  dragged my image to the bottom of the page and enlarged the image to fit in the right hand column (my intention for putting the image all the way to the right was to try to use just one layer for the challenge...but it didn't work because of the bleeding through from the coloring.)  I also set it up this way so i could see how my card would work.  Next i searched the internet for the perfect poem to go with the image and this is what i found written by Louise Hernan.

Copics i used:
Skin- E50, 51, 02
Hair- Y15,32, E34
Glasses- B04 lens- E00, 50
Dress- G20, 21 flower- R85, 81
Flower- RV66, R81, G21
Glossy Accents for glass lens
