Braver, Stronger, Smarter - Sugar Nellie

Another Happy Friday and wow, aren't they just speeding along so quickly?  I am with my Friday DT card for Sugar Nellie.   For today's card, I used one of the images from the super cute Wellington Bear set available at the Funky Kits store.
http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/
The sentiment is a Christopher Robin quote which I printed up on the computer using a Simply Glamorous and Underwood Champion fonts.  This image generates some mixed emotions for me... I love it but couple with the sentiment, it makes me stop and think and actually feel a little sad.  It is totally not what I intended when I created the card but it is how it makes me feel but I hope it would make a good encouragement or 'go for it' card for someone special. 
There's always plenty going on over at Sugar Nellie so pop back in often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Perfect sentiment to put with this stamped image. Wonderful card.

You are right Marilyn - it's a sort of bitter sweet card that one day will be sent to a very special person who will be greatly encouraged. Love your colouring, and the whole layout of the card.
Blessings

Just a FABULOUS encouragement card! Wow, I love it. The sentiment with the fonts, the sweet girl with her bear. The way you doodled the border and kept this CAS so the scene speaks for itself - just precious. Thanks for sharing it with us at Simply Papercraft, good luck!
Jennifer, DT
