This is such a cheerful uplifting card for someone who needs encouragement or is nervous about an upcoming event. I wish I could find the original post that inspired this card, but, alas it is lost, I’m not sure if I saw it on Pinterest or Youtube. When I first began making cards I would see a card and try to recreate it exactly the same, including color, design, stamps, etc. The card at the bottom is the original. Now that I have more experience I find it really fun to make some changes, sometimes I like them and sometimes I wish I hadn’t bothered. Let me know what you think.
