Now on to my take for the challenge:

I made this card for a friend who is struggling with cancer.  I wanted to make the card summery and bright so I used the beautiful digital paper from Bearly Mine Designs.  I added piercing around the sentiment to meet the challenge and to make a more elegant frame.
