Anything But a Card Challenge 43 -New Beginnings

Hello! It's week three of our New Beginnings challenge at Anything But a Card, and it's my turn to share.  New Beginnings is open to interpretation-using new items, new resolutions, wedding related, etc.  Just be sure to let us know what your 'new beginning' is when you link up!  We would love it if you would share with us!

I went with the more obvious 'resolution', but also slipped in a new to me stamp set as well!  I wanted to make something pretty that I would see every day that would remind me of the changes I want to make in my life.  This also needed to be a one layer project since it is going to be housed in a frame and hung on the wall.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and wrote my life goals using a gold Sharpie.  Then I stamped the background with various images from Kinda Eclectic.  This is probably one of the easiest (and cleanest) projects I have made in a long time, and I'm really happy with the soft colors-perfect for a gentle reminder!

The design team has once again come up with a wonderful variety of creations and we would love it if you would stop by and check them out.  It would be even more awesome if you joined us and linked up your own creation!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
