Today's card is for Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #189. I love this sentiment from the Close To My Heart's National Stamping Month promo set, You Are My Happy.

I thought this would make a nice card from a mom or dad to their teenage daughter. I'm pleased with this card but think I got a little heavy-handed with the distressing.
