Today's card has a focus on sentiment.  The quote reads, "We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have - Frederick Koenig".  I just love that.  

The quote is part of the Friendship Sentiments stamp set.  I could make cards all day with this one stamp set, I swear.  So many different quotes. The die cuts were made with Spellbinders dies, while the patterned paper is from American Crafts.  The flowers, black rhinestones, and solid black ribbon were bits and pieces from my stash collection.
