Life is a Grand Adventure

I had something else planned for this weeks challenge at The Card Concept but then I saw a stamp set at Michaels that jumped into my hands and said 'Buy Me!'
So I did. 
Actually it was 3 stamp sets. 
My husband just grinned at me.

Originally I was going to do a big red bike with a couple of mice on it but I decided to save that for another day. I stamped the bike in Catherine Pooler's Midnight ink and then added the sentiment with her Rockin' Red ink. Next I went on the hunt through all my stamps for some tiny flowers and I found one in Catherine Pooler's Grateful Heart stamp set that was perfect. YAY! For the stems I grabbed a green marker and just drew some lines. 
I used the stitched rectangle stackable dies from Lawn Fawn to die cut the stamped panel and then decided to cut two more panels to layer on the card.

This card is very clean and simple with a LOT of white space.
White space used to stress me out and now it calms me - funny how things change.
