I am showcasing a stamp from Great Impressions today.  This is called New Day (E770).  I picked this paper to go with this sentiment because it just looked like they were celebrating their day.  I remember doing things like this when I was young.  

The blue paper atop the children is actually part of the paper.  It was so far separated but I thought it should still be there so I cut it out and put it on the top.  I then stamped the sentiment straight onto the paper in black ink.  This is probably the most simple card I have ever done and I just love how it turned out.

Don't forget we have a challenge going on over at Great Impressions.  Our challenge this month is "April Showers Bring May Flowers".  We would love to have you join us!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Your card is lovely Robin, the children with their bicycle really does evoke memories of childhood and I very much like the sentiment you have used, it's a lovely font as well.

Many thanks for sharing with us at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges.
