So onto my card... I used one of the new Jennifer Garant sets this week!  I'm really excited about the addition of this artist's designs to the Woodware collection -- I so love "whimsical" art styles!  You can see Jennifer's official website here, you may recognize her style -- it's truly delightful and amusing!  WWUSA has released 8 of her sets along with 22 additional new sets as part of their NEW "Spring Collection"! 


The set I used is the "Girlfriends Live Well" Set.  Eeesh!!  Love it!!   The sentiments in this set include "Girlfriends" and "Bon Vivant" which means   "(French) n  A person who enjoys luxuries, esp good food and drink".  Why yes, indeed!!

I stamped the image onto Websters Pages Garden Gala DP (made for a quick background!) and colored it in with SU! markers in coordinating colors.  I added just a tad bit of sparkle to the presents on the front of the bicycle and two tiny grosgrain bows and that was about it for embellishing.  Layered it with more Websters Pages DP, black and Marina Mist cardstock and left it at that!

Hope you'll join the hop to check out all the wonderful cards our DT has made using many of he new releases.  Be sure you stop by the Woodware USA Blog this week to tell us about your fav set, and by all means, play along in the challenge too:  "Ribbons or Bows".  Link your card and you'll be eligible at the end of the month for ANOTHER WWUSA stamp set!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Hop along to Dawn's Blog now to see what fabulous-ness she has for you!!
