Strong Women Card

Yesterday was International Women's Day and I had a custom order for some cards in appreciation of strong, confident and awesome lady friends.

I fell in love with this new Unity stamp set called, very appropriately, Unity Girls and just HAD to buy it. It reminded me so much of my sis and I. 

I wanted to keep the focus on the women in the cards, considering the holiday the cards were celebrating.

I colored my image using Spectrum Noir Markers (TB1, TB2, GB4, GB5, GB6, PL1, PL3, PL4, FS1, FS3, EB4, EB6, TN3, TN4, TN9, GG1) and it was soooo relaxing. I forget, sometimes, how much fun it can be to sit and color. 

My colors were taken from:
CAS Colours and Sketches




Since we are celebrating strong women, I want to take the time to celebrate all of  YOU! My bloggy friends are all so uplifting and provide me with so much happiness with their sweet comments. THANK YOU for keeping my crafty mojo going!

I'm also going to link up this card to:
