hello, dear friend

I had this really cute tricycle designer paper in my stash... and I wanted to use it. Soooooo I went searching on my shelves, trying to find a stamp that would coordinate with it nicely. Truthfully, that's backwards to my normal system. Usually I select the stamp first, then the designer paper, then I color the image (if coloring is needed), then I do the layout and the embellishments. But sometimes a girl just needs to break out of her "norm" and go crazy! ;)

This was one of those times.




I kept the layout VERY simple - because remember, I wanted to show off this fun designer paper.







Here is the inside of my card, again with a bit of that designer paper:




This is my 80th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.

Love that designer paper, you have shown it off beautifully - and yes, it is good for the brain to do things 'differently' once in a while :-)
