Believe In Yourself!

Hello Friends!

Here is a quick card of encouragement.  To add some subtle interest I watermarked to kraft layer with
Lace Butterflies CC206  and added a gold shimmer with homemade shimmer mist on three Medium Butterflies DIE255-Y.  Also did a wee bit of faux stitching.

 One of the sentiments from the Fight Like A Girl CL578 set was embossed with Versafine Onyx Black and popped it up over Ornate Rectangle Frame DIE274-YY. Easy Peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
