Just Believe

Morning all.

A wee commissioned card to share with you today - I was asked to make a retirement card for a lady who liked flowers. 

I went through loads of ideas before finally settling on this. I made a base for the card by stamping the swirl from the Baroque Motifs Stampin' Up set and then inking round the edge of the card. I stamped the Just Believe set on the oval and inked round the edge of that too. 

The poem inside came from a Google search but can't remember where it came from so can't give credit for it.
