Dream...MLK did!



It's MLK Day, so I thought I'd create a unique card for the occasion. I know it's rare to send a card for this holiday, which is why I made one! I centered the purpose of it around encouragement using the highly recognized word of Dr. King's speech "dream." I finished the inside of this card with the greeting to emphasize the purpose of this encouraging card. It doesn't have to be given to someone on MLK Day, but at any time to someone who may have given up on a dream.
