Perfect Sentiment Challenge - Encouragement

"Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do." 

The Perfect Sentiment Challenge this week:  Create a card with a sentiment of congratulations or any sentiment that acknowledges an accomplishment or encourages someone to pursue their dreams/goals.  Examples include:  Congrats, You Did It, Dream Big, So Proud of You, You Rock, Shoot for the Stars, etc.  Remember your sentiment must be on the front of the card.
And, the twist:  Use the below sketch as inspiration for your card design.  Feel free to rotate or flip the sketch to make it work for you as long as we can still see the basic outline of the sketch in your design.

And here is my card:

The sentiment I chose because of some people I know that are ready to take on new and amazing adventures in their lives - leaving behind the known and comfortable.  Because of their creativity, drive, and determination I know they will be a huge success.

The paper is from Basic Grey - A Little Black Dress.  I chose the two varying prints as, to me, they represent the broadest personality spectrum.  Plaids are safe and comfortable.  Leopards are wild, crazy, looking for new avenues to explore.  The sentiment and image are Unity Birdie Duet.  The plaid and leopard paper was also used to create the center brads for the three flowers and one brad for the inside.  Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Five is the die cut for the stamped sentiment.  The image was embossed using Zing Black.

This challenge is being sponsored by Pattie's Creations.  The winner will receive their choice of one free digi image.
