A warm Hello card with Distress Markers

I recently invested in Copic markers.  It's harder than it looks and I am so not ready to use them on cards.  I tried this image with Distress Markers a while back and it's just been sitting in my "practice book" for awhile, so I took her out and decided to add her to a card.  I had this piece of die cut Heidi Swapp paper also on my desk from another project that didn't quite work the way I planned.  When I brought the 20's girl to my desk I noticed the paper matched perfectly.

It's good to try new things, learn new techniques.  Practice makes perfect and though she is a really rough practice... I think she will make someone's day just a little brighter.  Don't be afraid of imperfection... it just adds to the charm.
