Definition of Beauty

Ssooo... it is official... PicMonkey informs me I have another 'Masterpiece' tonight. :) PicMonkey knows its stuff! ;) lol I have a young grand niece who will be entering the third grade this year. She often comes and spends time with her old aunt to craft. School is starting for her soon and she's so dreading it. She's got a strawberry birthmark on her face and she's tormented by bullies. I always do everything to encourage her to believe in her own inner beauty and that bullies are really sad individuals who feel ugly inside and take out their anger on others. She just looks at me like I'm delusional but that's because she's so young. :)
This is my card just for her:
Of course, it's a twisted easel card:
Here's a side view:
Here's a closeup of the image:
The flowers are handmade and instead of adding Stickles, I dabbed the flower with glue and sprinkled Crystal Glitter on it. What FUN that was! lol Here's a good look at them:
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
