I made this card for a special friend.Well I do have a lot of  special friends that I would love to send .But this friend  just needs it .Sometimes it's nice to hear it....That's why I love this sentiment from Lili of the Valley.Believe that you are Wonderful.
I teamed it up with this image.She is so sweet.I also got to use the Bo Bunny papers "Gabrielle".Man do I love this line.

This is the inside....

The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp...forgot I had this.SHAME SHAME ! !As is the corner stamp which I used on the front as well.
