"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."
- e.e. cummings

I love this simple, forthright declaration of the universal human quest, from the wordsmith e.e. cummings. And what better visual metaphor than a vivid, red tulip, bravely growing tall, standing out, with no apologies for it's bold beauty!

Especially nice for the new graduate, or for any of us as we navigate our life journey!

Card is blank inside for your personal encouraging message...
I can customize with "CONGRATULATIONS!" or any wording you'd like ;-)
