Belly Band Card ft. STAMPlorations

EDIT: Top 3 at Creative with Stamps and Top Pick at STAMPlorations CAS Challenge
I'm guest designing at STAMPlorations, and this month's Theme & Sketch challenge theme is Stamps & Sponging. I decided to make a CAS encouragement card using STAMPloration's Amazing Word Die and some distress inks (Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers). The colors were inspired by the graphic shown below. I also wanted to capture the foggy neon light feel, so instead of sponging and saturating the entire white belly band with colors, I left some of the edges white. 

Now what's different about this encouragement card is that it not only has an upbeat sentiment, it also has a hidden one. Pulling off the belly band will reveal the sentiment. We all know that sometimes other people, maybe a boss or an ex-girlfriend, just don't see and appreciate how amazing a person really is. I hope this card will lighten their heart when they're feeling down, and feel a little more confident about themselves, too!
