A Walk Down Memory Lane

It is my turn to host the challenge over at 


I think it's really 'brave' to decorate in this bold design.  
Granted, back in the 90's, I happily painted 3 walls of my 
dining room hunter green and one wall merlot..  I even did my
living room with the bold shade of 'goldfish'
by Martha Stewart.  One wall only!
So I get it.
The question is....
are you willing to go outside the box?


I used great papers from Graphic45 (the dark blue),
Stampin' Up (the polka dot green) and American Crafts (silver).
I put my Distrezz-it-all from Zutter (my fave tool at the moment)
to good use on the edges of each layer.

How fun are these stamp images!?!


This week's sponsor is
 and I had a blast playing with them.

You could win over $60 
in rubber stamps!

Pop on over to The Play Date Cafe
and see what 'the world's best design team'
has done to inspire you to play.

Your card is great, although the colours would not have been my first choice. On your card go very well together.
