Fresh...fresh year, fresh inspiration, fresh supplies.  When I saw Casology's prompt I was inspired.  In December, I saw this darling stamp set (Sweet Dear Friend by Picket Fences) and ordered it immediately.  The girls seemed very fresh and pure and I thought they would be fun to use in the new year.  Today was my first day to try them out, but I see many future cards as well.

In brainstorming, I came up with the clean and simple idea of a line of four girls plus the sentiment bordered by a scored band.  I embossed the girls on Bristol cardstock and then used my TomBow watercolor markers.  The images are sketchy and I wanted to use bright, fresh, vivid colors to bring them to life.  I kept the hair and face muted so that the focus was on the dresses.  

TomBow colors - Dresses:  933, 755, 173, 443.  Face: 990.  Hair:  990+055

Handmade card with a scored border and illustrated with Tombow markers.

I am entering this card in Casology Week 325 Fresh Challenge.  

UPDATE:  I was very excited that my card received Honorable Mention from CASology this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
